Psychology majors can choose from three entirely online concentrations to build their degree program to suit their future career.
- General Psychology: Who we are is a complex mix of personality, background, culture, beliefs, and experiences, and each person’s story is unique. The general psychology major immerses you in the world of psychology theory, philosophy and research to understand what drives human behavior. Interactive, engaging and practical classes, combined with great internship experiences, prepare you for graduate school and your career. This degree is designed for students who are interested in the clinical, social, developmental, cognitive, biological and/or research areas in graduate school heading toward a master’s or doctoral degree, as well as for immediate careers in psychology-related settings.
- Pre-Counseling / Clinical Psychology: Whether dealing with a major life crisis or seeking wisdom and guidance for everyday life, everyone can benefit from the support and listening ear of a counselor. The pre-counseling/clinical psychology degree helps you build the skills to interact with, serve, encourage and support others. Corban offers specialized courses not typically found in most undergraduate psychology programs, such as trauma therapy, industrial-organizational psychology, community agency counseling and more. Choose the elective classes that meet your specific interests, and tailor your degree toward your career goals. This degree is designed for students who are interested in becoming licensed counselors or marriage and family therapists after completing graduate school, and/or working in ministry, social work and hands-on work settings, as well as for immediate careers in psychology- and ministry-related settings.
