College is about getting a great education.
For centuries, higher education focused on theories, history, and ideas.
These are worthy subjects, but the world has changed.
At Liberty, theories, history, and ideas are important. You’ll learn them — but you’ll also learn today’s workplace skills.
You’ll learn how to become the kind of employee that people want to work with — and work for.
Here, you’ll work with industry-standard equipment and study under seasoned professionals. You’ll sharpen your soft skills, leadership abilities, and problem-solving techniques. You’ll do ground-breaking research, but you’ll also network and make connections. And you’ll learn all of it from a biblical worldview.

How Can Your Degree Make a Difference in the Real World?
Psychology, social work, and counseling faculty and students regularly travel to Greece, Spain, Rwanda, Nepal, India, China, Moldova, Portugal, Ecuador, and other areas to provide and train others in trauma care and counseling for human-trafficking and sex-trafficking victims.*
The trauma training that graduate counseling student Megan R. practiced in Greece not only prepared her to get a job in Las Vegas helping victims of sex abuse and trafficking — but also positioned her to provide emergency grief and trauma counseling to those affected by the 2017 Las Vegas shooting.
*Teams also participate in reconciliation and forgiveness facilitation and provide care and counseling in refugee camps.
“Before Greece, I knew a lot of things intellectually. I read the books. I studied my Bible. I knew a lot of things I couldn’t fully understand or believe until I experienced it. I knew sex trafficking was happening, but I didn’t fully understand until I walked the streets.
I knew that God knows my heart, but until I found myself in a gorgeous country with friends I’ll now have for life, I couldn’t have fully believed that He KNEW me. My time in Greece changed, not only the course of my career, but the course of my walk with the Lord as well.”
