Department Goals and Objectives
The Psychology and Sociology department aims to explain individual and group behavior. Studying the social sciences develops the capacity for critical and analytical thinking about human behavior, community dynamics and social policies in terms of cultural and cross-cultural contexts. Those who study the psychology and sociology often go on to careers in social work, social/human services and the professional pastorate.
The Department of Psychology and Sociology strives to :
- Prepare students who are interested in careers in which they can apply an under- standing of human behavior.
- Prepare students for graduate study.
- Model and encourage academic excellence and integration of Christian faith and the social sciences.
- Model and encourage a global perspective for understanding human behavior
