Biopsychology (B.S.)

Biopsychology combines a streamlined health-focused biology major with a rich selection of psychology courses.

This interdisciplinary undergraduate degree is targeted to students interested in allied health careers such as occupational therapy or speech therapy or various jobs in pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies, medical companies, public health organizations, national mental health associations, or a field of education. This major is also appropriate for students who want to apply to a graduate health program such as physician assistant or medical school (the 28-29 hours of free electives could be used to fulfill prerequisites for such programs), especially if they are interested in neuroscience or the mental health field. In addition, this degree could lead to someone pursuing a graduate degree to be a licensed psychologist or working in fields such as cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, biological psychology, research psychology, or experimental psychology.

Prepare For a Career Connecting Biology and Psychology

The frontier of the brain is still wide open and largely unexplored, and we contend that God's masterpiece of creation is the human brain. The brain is so important in our everyday functioning as human beings. The need for dedicated Christians in this field is paramount at this time in our culture, and we hope that this major will help bridge this gap for Christians to influence the world of science from a Christian worldview versus from a naturalistic view.

This program offers the best of both biology and psychology, with enough space for additional courses to tailor the educational experience to your individual needs. Employment and mission opportunities in this field are available in many health- and science-related fields that involve working with people.
