Hello & Welcome

Psychology is the study of the human mind/soul. An undergraduate degree in Psychology prepares students for future graduate work or for one of a number of different careers (see above).A degree in Psychology focuses on developing self-awareness, cultural competency, relational and communication skills, providing a bedrock of understanding of the human mind and training in evidence-based scientific thought and analysis. These are the “soft skills” employers seek.
Several concentrations, including Sports Psychology, Organizational Leadership, and Brain Sciences are available, enabling students to specialize in their preferred field of study and better prepare for their intended careers.
We build culture. We offer individual attention and opportunities to mentor and lead. Our students tend to be relationally savvy, emotionally advanced, academically capable, socially-conscious. We exist to nurture spiritual, intellectual, psychological and professional growth in our students – to equip students as leaders, for lives of confident personal success and Kingdom influence.
The psychology program at DCC is designed to bring out the best in every student.

Degree Completion

Degree completion is a special degree category that allows you to finish a bachelor’s degree with a Bible minor rather than a Bible major. In terms of credit-hours, that means 18 hours vs. 30 hours—saving you about a semester as well as the cost of those 12 extra hours. Faster and less expensive. If you qualify and need to get done as quickly as possible, degree completion is your best plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is a Bible Major or Minor Required?

A Bible major or minor is one of the best possible ways to prepare a person for the workplace and the current world. Surveys indicate that one of the key skills employers look for in employees is critical thinking. Studying the Bible builds critical thinking skills and encourages clear articulation of thought through writing—another skill for which employers are looking. Studying Scripture is also foundational to answering questions about who you are and what you were created to do. Answering questions like that help students establish their worldview. To be able to lead within today’s world, current and future leaders must know important truths such as “God created us in His image” and how to apply those truths as the world continues to change. DCC graduates are prepared to lead.
