Department of Psychology & Counseling

The mission of the Southern Nazarene University Department of Psychology and Counseling is to partner with the university and students for the sake of developing persons who embody compassion, patience, presence, curiosity, thoughtfulness, and imagination. As a university rooted in the Wesleyan theological tradition, we invite our students to live relationally, to embody service and social justice, to use empirically sound methods, and to reflect thoughtfully about self, others, and creation.

For an undergraduate student our programs are designed to deepen one’s understanding of psychology, whether one desires to attend graduate school or is looking to pursue other professional disciplines/interests.

For the graduate student our programs are designed to develop qualified, credible professionals whose career endeavors and research are guided by a Christian perspective.
