Bachelor of Science in Psychology
As an individual with a desire to further your education and gain insight into the foundational principles of psychology, earning your Bachelor of Science in Psychology will equip you with the specialized knowledge, insight, and skills you need to achieve your goals and succeed in your career.
Liberty University’s® Bachelor of Science in Psychology program approaches the discipline of psychology from a Christian perspective to provide you with a firm foundation from which to understand psychological development and behavior.
Through the online psychology bachelor’s degree, you will gain insight into the development and influence of personality based on current theories, as well as study human personality in relation to others through the application of ideas about group dynamics relative to business, industry, and public and private life.
Courses give you the opportunity to tap into the diverse theoretical approaches of counseling and psychotherapy by evaluating associated methods and techniques. Furthermore, you will explore the complex functioning of the human body to acquire an understanding of primary mechanisms of behavior. You will also examine the origin, classification and symptoms of neurotic and psychotic behavior.
The Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree serves as an excellent stepping stone toward earning a Master of Arts in Human Services, Marriage and Family Therapy, or Professional Counseling — all offered online through Liberty University Online.
Optional cognates in Substance Abuse, Christian Counseling, Crisis Counseling, Life-Coaching, and Military Resilience are available.
