Program Overview

Gain knowledge to change people’s lives through understanding of the complexity of the human mind with a degree in psychology at Concordia.  

A psychology major will study the biological and psychological influences on the human mind. At Concordia University Wisconsin, our courses are grounded in science, ethical research, and Christian service. We have a holistic approach toward learning that allows students to build their knowledge in the classroom, and then apply it in supervised, practical experience at local agencies and institutions. Toward the end of your degree in psychology (typically during your junior year), you will apply for senior status. Once approved, you will enroll in Practicum, Research Proposal, and Senior Seminar. You will possess the skills and knowledge needed for graduate studies or can pursue a profession once you complete your degree in psychology.

The degree in psychology program is also available as a minor. 

What to Expect

A psychology major will study theories of personality, abnormal psychology, psychotherapy, and human behavior. Faculty will help you become familiar with procedures, principles, theories, and vocabulary of psychology, and provide the tools necessary for success. Each psychology class builds on and reflects the others, such as how learning about the developmental stages from conception to death is relevant when studying how individual preferences and worldviews are shaped. And, how proper interpretation of research is key to using current therapy approaches in treating behavioral disorders. You will also have the opportunity to participate in numerous service endeavors in the community and make a positive impact before you complete your bachelor’s degree in psychology.
