Psychology

Asbury University presents psychology from a Christian perspective, believing that all truth is God's truth. Asbury's Psychology Department affirms secular psychology when it is compatible with the Bible. When possible, secular psychology is integrated with a Christian world view. In the same way, you will be expected to integrate your faith and psychology both personally and professionally.

The Psychology major provides an excellent basis for those who want to enrich their understanding of themselves and others. You'll be made aware of ethical problems in the acquisition and application of psychological knowledge. At Asbury University, you'll be encouraged to make ethical choices.

Because psychology professions usually involve relationships with other persons, you'll also be urged to expand your personal social development through mission trips, student leadership positions or cross-cultural experiences.

Many of our psychology graduates go on to do graduate work. Asbury University psychology graduates have a graduate-school acceptance rate of approximately 90 percent.

Among our faculty, you'll find real people you can talk to—in and out of the classroom. Your professors will know you by name and care about your development as a student, as a person, and as a Christian.

Asbury University also sponsors a chapter of Psi Chi, the national student-directed psychology honor society. Members of the University's psychology club often participate in field trips to conventions and conferences.
