Psychology & Criminal Justice

From brain science to culture

integrating academic study and the Christian faith

Understanding why we think, feel and act as we do–while gaining perspective on our own experiences, developing sympathetic understanding of others and learning ways to help people in need.

Psychology & Criminal Justice

At Houghton, psychology and criminal justice students wrestle with the ways in which the Christian faith frames and informs our studies and our understanding.

Students of psychology read widely, investigate problems scientifically, and think carefully and deeply. They also share the knowledge they gain with others through writing, public presentation and professional service.

A distinctive feature of the psychology and criminal justice majors at Houghton is the integration of academic study and the Christian faith. We seek to understand. Such integrative learning occurs in our classes, our research and our service.
