Why Major in Christian Psychology?
Too many people believe that being a Christian Psychologist is a contradiction in terms. Christians sometimes feel uncomfortable around Psychologists, and some Psychologists are uncertain about Christians. Here at KCU we proclaim that there is no necessary contradiction between the Scriptures and the facts of Social Science. We believe that a thorough integration of a dynamic Christianity and a scholarly Psychology is very possible. In fact, this is the goal of our program!
We seek to prepare students for graduate study in Psychology. To do this, we provide our students broad opportunities to learn and become all they can be. We seek to train Christian professionals who will become leaders, bringing the skills of Psychology to serve Christ's church, and impacting professional Psychology for Christ.
