Northwestern’s Adult Undergraduate Psychology program is set apart from the study of psychology at a secular college or university. With a view of psychological principles through the context of a biblical lens, a focus on ethics and the required biblical coursework, you will be equipped to apply and practice the knowledge and skills you gain from a Christian perspective.

Marriage and Family concentration

You may choose to take some concentration courses for graduate credit in the Master of Arts in Human Services program (graduate tuition charges apply).
