Program Description

Truett-McConnell College offers a Biblically-centered Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology. The focus of the program is to educate students in the principles of theology, philosophy, and psychology in order to prepare students to enter the helping fields (ie., professional counseling, social work, law, and medicine). Truett's academic program is unique in the approach of grounding students in the truth of the Bible while introducing them to and engaging them with the various philosophies and theories guiding the research and practice of psychology. Students will be exposed to challenging courses, invaluable internships, and training in psychological research in fulfillment of their requirements for the program.

Psychology Major

The program in psychology seeks to serve the mission of the College by actively engaging students in a course of study that will ground them in Biblical scripture, equip them with an understanding of the discipline, and enable them to use their knowledge for greater impact in the world. Graduates of the psychology program will be grounded in a Christian Worldview so that they might exemplify the commandment of Christ to love God and love others by building up and encouraging others in their future psychology-related careers and ministries. Graduates of Truett-McConnell College's Psychology program will be able to think critically to integrate their foundation in Christian theology with principles discussed in their courses to "admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone."

Missions & Psychology

The mission of the interdisciplinary program in Missions and Psychology is to prepare students to spread the message of Christ through word and action. Through direct and personal interaction with people from diverse backgrounds (e.g., the residents of an orphanage, group home, teen pregnancy center or drug and alcohol abuse center), graduates with this degree will exemplify the New Testament model of a tentmaker, providing a service to people from the foundation of Jesus Christ. The program seeks to equip students with a) a firm understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, b) a grasp of psychological principles and theories, and c) opportunities to contextualize their classroom learning experiences. As such, students will engage in studies that connect the disciplines of Missions/Christian Studies, Anthropology, Psychology, and Sociology and activities that support these disciplines.
