Psychology In the Christian University
Do you have a passion for people? Are you interested in learning why people do the things they do? The mission of the Psychology Department at Colorado Christian University is to broaden your understanding of God's creation within the context of psychology and to challenge you to confront the complexities of the integration of psychology and faith. Classroom instruction introduces you to the expanding literature of theoretical and experimental psychology while field experience enables you to understand, test and apply psychological theories in real situations. Application of psychological principles encourages you to grow in your personal life, interpersonal relationships, spiritual well-being and professional competencies.

In my courses, we examine many of the theoretical models of integration, as well as the experimental literature on the psychology of religion. I strive to integrate my faith with learning by respecting the dignity and value of all of my students, acknowledging their freedom and responsibility, and attempting to embody evidence of compassion, empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard.
