Bachelor of Science in Education/Social Science
A major in psychology seeks to promote the following general educational and personal goals:
- To aid the student in the development of a worldview, that integrates knowledge in psychology with other disciplines and the Christian faith;
- To apply/relate this knowledge to the problems and opportunities of contemporary society; and
- To explore with the student career paths in psychology and related fields.
To help accomplish these goals, the major is imbedded in a liberal arts program and is committed to mainstream scientific psychology. The empirical method of research is thus the model of preference. During his/her studies, the student of psychology has the unique opportunity to relate psychological knowledge to other fields of study. This opportunity should aid the student in relating psychological knowledge not only toward the direction and quality of life in general, but also toward the growth and enrichment of oneself. The student is thereby encouraged to examine these issues within the context of the major.
This degree is designed for students who plan to teach middle school or high school students. Concentrations in History and Psychology are also possible.
