Are you concerned about ending social inequality and human suffering? Do you have a passion for cultural diversity and human rights? Do you work well with different types of people or have a desire to help others?

Explore human memory, personality, counseling, dreaming and child development. Research behavioral differences in children, eye contact, self-confidence, race, self-esteem, rural/urban populations, happiness and marriage. Learn about the principles of your mind, brain and behavior.

Prepare for a pre-professional program or graduate school. With our behavioral sciences major, the possibilities are endless.

We offer a Psychology major with Child Development, Health and Human Services emphases and teaching licensure.  And a Sociology major with Criminal Justice and Health and Human Services emphases. Minors are also available. See our Catalog and Schedule for course descriptions.
Our Psychology and Sociology faculty are eager to help their students gain a full understanding while applying what they learn to every day life situations.
McPherson College offers scholarships and financial assistance to all of its students.
