Indiana Wesleyan University's Psychology major provides students with a better understanding of human thought and behavior by studying psychological theory and research, exploring philosophical issues related to the nature of the person, and integrating their findings in light of Christian perspectives. The program emphasizes the practical application of psychological principles in everyday life, combining theory and practice, scholarship and service. Coursework, practicums, and research experiences help students develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills.
Students may also choose to minor in Psychology as a supplement to another IWU major.
The curriculum provides students with a broad base and solid foundation in several areas of psychology, offering a Christ-centered approach to this vital and growing area. Faith integration within the field is emphasized, relating biblical principles to the study of human behavior. Our graduates are well equipped to pursue advanced training or a variety of careers working with people, including service as psychiatric technicians or human resources managers.
