Psychology Undergraduate Degree Program at MidAmerica Nazarene University.
MidAmerica Nazarene University
Psychology is the study of mind and behavior. We want to understand "why?" Why do people have certain thoughts, feelings and behaviors? We want to understand "how?" How do we effectively help people to live a life that is full, healthy, and connected?

The Facts

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.

"My favorite class was Social Psychology because it explained the individual as a social being. It's a class that I think anyone can benefit from because as they say, no man is an island."
