“This program is as much about who you are as it is about what you know.  It informed how I engaged my cross-cultural and motivated my engagement on campus as a student leader.” -Rachel Bowman '16 pursuing a PhD in Justice, Law, and Criminology at American University.

As a psychology student at EMU, you will integrate your personal, professional-ethical, social, and faith understandings of psychology through rigorous academic study and research. The program has an Anabaptist perspective on the art and practice of psychology, preparing students to serve the common good.

You will study abnormal, cognitive, developmental, personality and social psychology courses culminating in a senior capstone internship in a local community service agency. You will also develop self-awareness, communication and relevant work-place skills.

Study in psychology provides multiple perspectives on understanding persons as individuals and individuals in community. Research findings about the mind and mental processes as well as studies of the development, maintenance and change of socially significant behavior are emphasized throughout the curriculum.
