Overview

Biblical — You won’t have to sacrifice biblical truth while you’re studying psychology at Cedarville. When psychological material seems to conflict with a Christian worldview, your professors will go directly to Scripture to see what God has said about the subject. You will be encouraged to discuss these issues among professors and fellow students, always using God’s Word as the source of all truth.
