Psychology Major

Bethany's timeless perspective into the makeup of individuals is that each person is a complex composite of intellect and emotion, frailties and strengths, body and soul.

Based on this understanding, our psychology students gain insight into their own behavior. This translates into a better comprehension of others. Students choose to focus on general psychology, counseling, or industrial and organizational psychology. Read more.

Preparing our graduates

To put it simply, we care very much about what our students do after graduation. For this reason, our program places an emphasis on personal growth and development. By working closely together, we ensure that our students establish goals that lead to fulfilling lives of purpose.
