Featured Testimonial

The education I received at Houghton helped me prepare to enter into the field of psychology with a strong understanding of how God plays a role in the field. The professors incorporated God into all of the academic topics and allowed me to grow academically and spiritually. I learned to view topics like statistics, philosophy, and writing as tools that God uses to reveal Himself to us.
