Bachelor of Science in Psychology / Family Studies
Corban University

Program Details

At Corban University, students will experience biblically based programs that provide a uniquely Christian view on their profession or field of study. A great example of this spiritual and academic blending is found in the Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology: Major in Family Studies that Corban offers, which is ideal for adults who wish to complete their bachelor’s degree in psychology while also fostering their own spiritual growth. The program focuses on the studies of counseling, family systems, marriage and family, and ethnicity, social class and family, all through a biblical worldview. It is designed as an interdisciplinary approach to the study of family dynamics and the relationships between families and the larger society. Students who have completed the Family Studies major have gone on to accept positions in the fields of sociology, social services, education and lay ministries. Additionally, many graduates go on to graduate school to pursue degrees in education, psychology, social work and counseling. 

The Family Studies major consists of course subjects including Counseling, Family Theory, Christian Faith and the Modern World, and an independent study project in family studies. With the relatively low requirement of in-major semester hours, students are free to tailor their coursework to their interests by choosing several electives or liberal studies classes to pursue. This customization is just one of the many benefits of studying at Corban University.
