(On-Campus & Online)

Life University’s B.S. Psychology


In addition to incorporating Life University’s vitalistic philosophy, our psychology majors are taught to emphasize the inborn human capacities for love, courage, forgiveness, wisdom and interpersonal connection. Along with scientific study, these principles are woven throughout all coursework and culminate in real-life applications through either an internship or a senior thesis experience.

The American Psychological Association (APA) reports that the profession is moving toward a greater focus on illness prevention rather than mere diagnosis and treatment, which means it’s catching up to Life University and our emphasis on positive psychology.

Our psychology programs, both on-campus and online, don’t simply equip students with the traditional knowledge and tools of the trade. LIFE students also become passionate, curious, lifelong learners and innovators who never underestimate the power of the human mind, body and spirit to overcome, adapt and transform.
