The psychology minor provides you with a foundational understanding of human behavior and interpersonal interactions. You will learn about general themes of psychology, human development from conception to death, issues related to mental illness, and the basic theories underlying psychological functioning. All courses are taught from a Christ-centered perspective so you learn the core content of psychology but also evaluate the ways in which psychology fits and/or conflicts with your faith.
Some classes in this minor include:
- Introduction to Psychology
- Lifespan Psychology
- Abnormal Psychology
- Psychology of Counseling
- Clinical Health Psychology
- Marriage and Family Counseling
- Psychology of Stress Management
UNW is a great place to study psychology because the professors not only give you the fundamentals of psychology and the theories, but they also challenge you to integrate your faith and your biblical worldview in every aspect of psychology. While psychology is seen as a secular study, UNW shows students that as Christians it is our duty to incorporate our faith into all aspects of our life, including our careers.
