Why Study Psychology at Redeemer?
 
 
If you pursue Psychology at Redeemer, you will:
  • Learn why people do what they do and think what they think.
  • Learn about behaviours and characteristics of development that are typical or “normal" and you will also learn about behaviours and characteristics of development that are atypical or "abnormal".
  • Gain insight into who you are and why you are the way you are.
  • Learn to more fully appreciate the people around you, and their diversity.
  • Learn to see and appreciate each person as a whole person created in the image of God.
  • Take courses that are scripturally-directed and explore the relation of faith, learning and living from a Christian perspective.
  • Understand all dimensions of humanness—spiritual, cognitive, social and biological — and how they interact.
  • Learn that all psychological study, whether clinical or experimental, is guided by the following assumptions: that we are part of the natural world, that we are influenced by natural, social and biological factors, and that we also possess self-awareness and are capable of making choices about our thoughts, feelings and interactions.
  • Grow and mature as a person who seeks to serve God and others in your work, especially in seeking to fulfill God's mandate of being stewards over His creation. To care for others, you must first understand them.
