Program of Study - Psychology
(Starting Fall 2014)
The study of psychology enables students to develop their critical understandings and appreciations of individual human nature and functioning through the examination of psychological theories, the use of psychological methods, and the analysis of psychological data. This program is designed to equip students with a broad, psychological understanding of human life and relationships, an awareness of methods, topics, and trends in Psychology, and an advanced ability to think analytically, critically, and creatively.
In addition to meeting the mission and purposes of Providence, this program will enable each graduate to: characterize the various methods and theoretical perspectives of Psychology in contrast to other Social Sciences and the Humanities; demonstrate knowledge of differing approaches to the integration of Christian perspectives and Psychology, and skill in its practice; articulate how individuals develop, function, and change in everyday life; interpret his or her individual human experience and thereby enhance self-understanding, for the purpose of attaining more enlightened and satisfying human experience; display an appreciation of an commitment to the common good and well-being of human life; and be prepared for further studies in Psychology.
All students in degree programs are required to take a minimum of courses in a variety of general arts and sciences so as to enable them to acquire an adequate foundation and context for their chosen area of studies, and to develop a critical appreciation of scholarship in general.
Biblical and Theological Studies establish anchor points for effective Christian thinking, living, and serving in the church and in society. The Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences deepen the understanding and heighten the appreciation of human nature, thoughts, cultures, and societies. Music and Theatre foster the musical and dramatic expression of the human spirit, condition, and experience.
