Psychology and/or Education

Interdisciplinary Studies

The Interdisciplinary program allows students to tailor their emphasis in psychology or education with another area of interest such as music, religion, natural science or business. This degree will prepare students for entrance into a graduate program (Master’s in Counseling, MFT, LPCC or Psychology Doctorate), or prepare them to apply for NAD teaching certification for elementary education.

  • In the US, 1 in 5 adults suffers from a debilitating mental health disorder in any given year. Furthermore, children in public school settings are frequently exposed to many unhealthy points of view; Satan’s battle is often in the mind. We prepare future counselors and/or teachers to help fight in the battle for the minds in the Great Controversy.

In addition:

  • Receive quality Scripture-based education with low student to teacher ratios.
  • Explore multiple fields of psychology & education, including understanding thoughts and behaviors and how powerful they can be.
  • Shadow real counselors working in depression and anxiety recovery or experience student teaching.
  • Conduct psychological research and present at research conferences such as Western Psychological Association
  • Receive training in classroom behavior management from a Biblical perspective.

Christian Counseling and NAD Elementary Education are noble professions, but they are not the only way to serve the Lord with this program. The beauty of an interdisciplinary degree is tailoring it to student career goals and life mission.

Other career* options include (but are not limited to):

    • Criminal psychology: Work in adult psychopathology and treatment, the juvenile justice system, or aid the criminal justice system.
    • Industrial organizational or business psychology: Combine psychology and business to pursue one of the fastest growing fields in psychology. Work in human resources management, employee training, development.
    • Missionary: Understand culture and education to work as an overseas missionary in education.
    • School counselor: Combine psychology and education and provide academic and social- emotional competencies to all students through a school counseling program.

* These careers may require a Master’s degree
