The World Needs Your Care

The Bachelor of Arts in Psychology enhances our understanding of the human condition in light of a distinctive Christian worldview. Our theoretical framework synthesizes broad-based knowledge drawn from the fields of psychology, anthropology, sociology, and cultural studies to provide the student with a sound social sciences foundation. Students are challenged and equipped to become change agents, accepting the responsibility to truly make a difference in the lives of hurting individuals within a global context.

"One of the most incredible things about Northwest are the professors. They truly invest in our lives through prayer, interest, and an open ear. I wouldn't be where I am if it wasn't for the time that my psychology professors spent with me. I am truly blessed by the prayers, the connections made, and the material that I was taught at NU. It has given me confidence, endurance, and a thirst not only for knowledge, but also my personal spiritual journey."

— Valentina Korepanova
