Psychology

Overview

In the beginning God create..." and with these words the human story was ushered into being. All that we are, including who we are as people, how we think, how we function, how we develop - all of that finds its beginnings in those moments of time between Genesis 1 & 2. Yet, much of the science of psychology has long ignored the origins of humanity and has sought to understand existence only through the eyes of modern reasoning. Psychological studies at Central Christian are designed to help students see the unique interplay between science and faith - not as an integrative model, but as an essential component of existence.

The psychology major is designed to introduce students to a broad view of the field of psychology, while at the same time providing the expertise needed to excel in the discipline. Psychology majors will have the chance to interact with many of the major theories and gain an understanding of the role psychology plays within the broader scope of all academic disciplines.

Since Central Christian College of Kansas is committed to personalized education, do not expect large lecture halls with hundreds of students feverishly taking notes, desperately trying to keep up with some professor's lecture. With an average of 15-20 students in a class, one can expect a very personal and interactive classroom environment. Central Christian is a place where faculty and students wrestle together with the issues, and in turn challenge one another to excellence. Studying psychology at Central Christian can open up many doors of opportunity depending on a student's career or educational goals. If one chooses to continue his or her education and move on to graduate level studies, then he or she can be assured that time here will have been well spent. Our comprehensive approach to education will provide the necessary tools to help students succeed in his or her educational endeavors.

We invite you to apply today - and begin your exploration of human behavior and the discovery of spiritual truths.
