Psychology at Hesston College is a great major for persons who enjoy learning about people and their experiences. Our classroom teachers are trained in counseling and approach the content as a way for you to learn about yourself and those around you. Our courses are practical with hands-on assignments that help you understand the concepts and our world. We focus on learning about the complexity of the human experience and empathy or other people’s perspectives. Many of our assignments get you out in the community meeting people such as Schowalter Villa (a local retirement community), school visits or connecting psychology to current events, research and your everyday life.
Hesston College offers three core courses in psychology- General Psychology (general education option), Developmental Psychology that focuses on case study and observational research and Social Psychology that focus on experimental psychology. We offer a one-hour unique seminar course called Positive Psychology that focuses on formation and personal growth.
