Psychology BA Program

Psych General Description

The BA in Psychology is designed to provide working adult students with the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree in a schedule and format that meets their unique needs. The curriculum will help the student become a professional in understanding human behavior within the contexts of the individual, relationships, and environment. The program’s purpose is to prepare graduates to serve others with a Christian worldview. This degree can prepare students for non-clinical positions in business, governmental agencies, helping professions, human services, marketing research, mental health, ministry, public relations, and other areas for which knowledge of psychology theory and application enhances the individual's qualifications for employment. 

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this program, the graduate should be able to: 

  1. Examine the teachings of Scripture and a Christian worldview and their relationships to psychological studies.
  2. Apply theories of human behavior to situations involving individuals and dynamics within relationships, families, communities, and organizations. 
  3. Interpret psychological research to guide understanding of human behavior.
  4. Evaluate strategies to serve various populations struggling with complicated and difficult situations.

Psychology Coursework

The BA in Psychology is a structured curriculum that includes the general core requirements and psychology requirements for the bachelor degree. Thirty-six (36) semester hours are earned by completing the courses online one at a time. Students will be part of a cohort which will participate in all courses together, forming a support group for success. This degree would be a great compliment to our current associate-level human service offerings and will allow these students to continue into appropriate graduate-level programs, such as Trevecca's MOL program.
