Bachelor of Arts in Psychology

Where can this degree take me?

The understanding of people, how we each think and behave, and the relationships between people are essential aspects of the various challenges of life. By choosing the Psychology major at Trinity, you can prepare to meet those challenges.

Our students not only learn conceptual theories and research methods, but also learn how to better understand themselves, relate to others, and work with others in an effective manner. At Trinity, we prepare students for graduate school, the workplace, the community, their church, and their family life. We encourage them to explore and assess their values, expand their interests, and discover their God-given gifts and abilities. We desire that they strive to become more authentic people, and to hone their critical thinking skills and problem solving capabilities to function as thoughtful learners well beyond the task of earning a degree.
