The Psychology Department at Dallas Christian College offers instruction in the social science field of psychology. The Psychology Department offers two degrees, the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science with a major in Psychology.
This degree requires 18 hours of Bible and theology courses, 51 hours of General Education (including 12 hours of Bible and theology), 31 credit hours in the major, and 29 hours of open electives (17 hours plus 12 hours of Greek for the B.A. degree). The major includes a three-hour field mentored experience (Internship) designed to apply classroom content to practical experience specific to the major. The area of the internship must have prerequisite study. The psychology major equips a student with the foundational tools in psychology and counseling from a biblical perspective. The degree prepares students to continue studies in graduate school. Students should note that any undergraduate degree in psychology is preparatory for graduate studies.
All licensing for psychology and counseling requires the minimum of a master's degree.
