Biblical Principles | At Liberty, we seek to Train Champions for Christ. In keeping with this mission, we’ve designed our online courses to integrate ethical principles with professional knowledge. By approaching psychology from a biblical perspective, you can prepare to make a lasting difference in the lives of those around you.

Experienced Professors | Our courses are taught by faculty with years of professional counseling experience. They will provide valuable training that can help you thrive in a variety of careers.

Practical Training | In this program, you can gain real-world experience by completing a 125-hour internship. This could help boost your marketability and demonstrate your expertise to employers. Or, rather than doing an internship, you can instead complete a capstone course designed to help you synthesize psychological theories, biblical worldview, and personal reflection. The internship and capstone both provide valuable opportunities to gain hands-on skills for your career.

Our online crisis counseling degree provides a solid foundation in core psychology skills. Some of the topics you’ll study include social psychology, behavioral modification, statistics, and abnormal psychology. You’ll also explore how psychology and Christianity interact so you can develop a well-rounded approach to human behavior and mental health. Other topics of study include research, multicultural counseling, and the physiological aspects of psychology.

Our crisis counseling concentration analyzes the theoretical, historical, and practical aspects of crisis response. You’ll explore methods for helping people function in everyday life and maintain healthy relationships in the wake of trauma. You’ll also learn how to mitigate the damage caused by post-traumatic stress, extreme grief, and mental health crises. That way, you can offer immediate assistance to victims and survivors and help ensure their safety.
