BA: Psychology – Marriage and Family Studies
HBU Online Learning Program
This program sets high and clear expectations, promotes active learning, and provides students with timely feedback on their progress. In addition to receiving a strong foundation in the scientific and applied traditions of psychology, students will learn about family dynamics, systems theory, and counseling strategies used by marriage and family therapists. Overall, the program prepares students to integrate their faith with the practice of counseling and provides a launching pad for further graduate study in marriage and family therapy. This degree will equip men and women to serve their fellow man.
Course work in Psychology provides much of the liberal arts foundation students will receive at HBU, a foundation that will prepare them for many different career fields by teaching interpersonal, analytical, and critical-thinking skills that will be required in any professional environment. But more importantly, these courses will lead students to a higher wisdom in understanding life, people, and the world around them.
