About

The Psychology major at Houghton College prepares you for a career in human services or for graduate study in psychological research, clinical or counseling psychology and more.

Overview

Psychologists study normal and abnormal behavior, structured and erratic thinking, and stable and troubled emotion. A degree in psychology will enable you to understand why we think, feel and act as we do. Psychology majors gain perspective on their own experiences, develop sympathetic understanding of others and learn ways to help people in need.

Houghton College Psychology program places a strong emphasis on research with primary sources, designing and conducting experiments, writing, and developing analytical skills. Psychology majors read widely, investigate problems scientifically, and think carefully and deeply. They wrestle with the ways in which the Christian faith frames and informs their studies and their understanding, and they share the knowledge they gain with others through writing, public presentation and professional service. The majority of our students include a psychology internship as part of the major.

Since so many careers in psychology require graduate training, coursework in the psychology major prepares all students for further study at the graduate level. Even without graduate training, knowledge of psychological functioning of individuals and groups is a valuable asset in professions such as medicine, law, business, education, therapeutic recreation and ministry.
