Overview

Our classes are small, so you will receive considerable individual attention. The major in psychology consists of core and elective classes. Courses in the core provide an introduction to the field, teach general research skills, provide space to reflect on the interaction of faith and psychology and cover the foundational areas of personality theory. The elective classes you choose for personal interest or to meet your career goals. You have the opportunity for both experiential learning and faculty-directed student research.

As a psychology student at Bluffton, your classes are designed to provide solid preparation for either employment upon graduation or for you to move on to graduate studies. 

Bluffton's psychology major includes core courses in personality theory, social psychology, learning theory and abnormal psychology, and opportunity for elective classes in a variety of areas, such as gender issues, restorative justice and public health.
