Psychology is a Bachelor of Arts degree within the Psychology Department. It is offered as a major and as a minor.

Ever wonder why you do what you do—and what you can do to improve? Psychology at Redeemer is the study of the whole person created in the image of God through all the “horizontal” dimensions of humanness—biological, perceptual, emotional, cognitive, linguistic, social, cultural, economic, aesthetic, and more. Explore the crucial “vertical” dimension of psychological functioning, the domain of worship and ultimate valuing, all in the context of pursuing a living relationship with the living God.

Student Story

Miranda Van Rooyen
Art student ‘17


Miranda Van Rooyen
Art student ‘17

" Miranda did an internship with RE-create, an open arts student for street-involved youth in downtown Hamilton. She says, “Making art with the youth [at RE-create] allowed me to get to know each person in unanticipated ways. My internship helped me understand the importance of art and psychology in a way that I wouldn’t have been able to know by just being in a classroom. Art can be used as part of a self-healing process, whether a person considers themselves to be an artist or not.” You can find Miranda’s full story on Resound. "
