The Psychology program is student centered with the focus on the education of the whole person integrating cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and spiritual aspects within social contexts. Distinguishing features of the Psychology program are students from multi-cultural perspectives, dynamic and compassionate faculty, encouragement of self-awareness and exploration toward a deeper understanding of self, Asian perspective in Psychology, and fostering of the application of Psychology to the self and others in the global community.
