Psychology, B.A.

 

"The psychology program has given me the skills and knowledge needed to form an educated voice that is rooted in biblical truths. I feel more than prepared to succeed from the foundation that was built in the CBSS."

What is the best thing about the psychology major at CBU?
I have enjoyed the [College of Behavioral and Social Sciences] here at CBU and, in particular, psychology. For me, the faculty are the ones who have made it an enjoyable experience for me. The professors are fully invested in each class discussion, assignment and test and treat them all with equal importance. I have also enjoyed the small class sizes. This has allowed for more in-depth discussion, and for me to receive tailored help for my questions on assignments and tutoring on missed questions on tests and quizzes. Ultimately, the psychology program has given me the skills and knowledge needed to form an educated voice that is rooted in biblical truths. 

Describe one memory from your time at CBU that involves the psychology major, psychology classes or events in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences.
One thing in particular that I have liked about the [College of Behavioral and Social Sciences] are the semester panels that are put on by the CBSS clubs. These panels bring together some of the most intelligent professors in the school and have them answer some of the most pressing questions that are being asked in today’s society. The professors featured on the panels do not treat the time as a lecture, but are candid with the audience and speak from their experience and research. 

What has the psychology major done to help you prepare for your future goals?
The psychology program has given me tons of exposure to different human services, human development and human interaction. The CBSS also brings in professionals from the behavioral health fields and they are able to give real-world experience and provide counsel for personal future aspirations. Each class has sparked different interests for graduate school whether it be social work, counseling psychology or industrial-organizational psychology. Whichever graduate school and career I choose to pursue, I feel more than prepared to succeed in the program from the foundation that was built in the CBSS.
