Psychology department students

Psychology Department

The Wheaton College Department of Psychology, through its undergraduate, masters and doctoral programs, strives to educate its students in a manner grounded in, informed by, and shaped by the beliefs and practices of the Christian faith.


We recognize that psychology is a diverse and rich discipline and that each student has a unique set of interests, gifts, and learning styles. As a result, each program is designed to familiarize students in the traditional theoretical, empirical, and applied areas of psychology and clinical psychology, how to conduct psychological research, and how to evaluate the important theories and presuppositions in psychology from a Christian perspective.

The faculty represents a wide cross-section of interests within psychology to meet this need, and is actively involved in research funded through the College and external funding sources.
