At MNU, we study psychology with a compassionate heart. Professors lead you in discussions and projects that explore the social, developmental, neuropsychological, cultural and biological aspects of human function.
Psychology at MNU actively engages our knowledge of human science with our Christian faith.
Our classes follow guidelines established by the American Psychological Association. You'll study topics like human
development, social psychology, organizational psychology, psychobiology and statistical methods, abnormal behavior and the fundamentals of counseling. You'll understand research methods, including experiment design and analysis. You will complete an internship as part of the psychology program, providing exposure to the everyday life in psychology-related professions allowing for great networking opportunties.
