Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Psychology and Family Studies is to educate students about the theories in the field of Psychology and Family Studies, and to encourage the use of this knowledge to improve their chosen professions, churches and communities.  We especially emphasize the science of psychology and train our students to use an empirical approach, based on the use of the scientific method, for understanding human behavior, and the integration of that scientific approach with a Christian world-view.
