Develop skills necessary for life-long learning.

Ultimately, psychology at WLC is designed to develop thinking and skills to enable students to become life-long learners. Each course promotes the ability to think scientifically about behavior and mental processes and to judge psychological fact on the basis of validity and reliability of the evidence in accordance with God's truth.

Connect with the community through service learning opportunities.

The psychology program reflects the broad range of learning opportunities and experiences available to our students. We offer service opportunities in the community, internships that represent a range of careers and teaching opportunities that develop leadership skills.

Apply critical thinking to your interactions with others.

In psychology, student learning incorporates multi-sensory experiences designed to assist you in applying knowledge, critical and creative thinking and interpersonal awareness. Students are encouraged to take what they learn beyond the classroom and into their day-to-day interactions with others.
