PSYCHOLOGY is the scientific study of mind and human behavior.
About the Program
At MNU, we study psychology with a compassionate heart. 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? With the movement towards more integrated health care nationally, the need for psychology professionals is growing.
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. And our classes follow guidelines established by the American Psychological Association.
