People are fascinating.

What makes us tick? There aren’t many things more interesting than the inner workings of the most sophisticated three pounds of tissue in the world — the human brain. The study of Psychology takes you into the inner workings of cognition, motivation, personality, concentration, memory, and more. Understanding these processes is fundamental to success in many careers that begin with a degree in psychology, such as advertising, social work, marketing, corrections officer, career counselor, sales, and, of course, psychologist.



If you want to understand people in light of how God has designed them and His purpose for their lives, Crown is the place for you. We believe it is important to understand all that psychology has to offer, but that the ultimate authority on truth is God Himself. So we integrate faith into our curriculum and challenge psychology where it does not line up with truth as scripture defines it. We also believe that people studying in the “helping professions” should be taught by practitioners, not just academics. This is why our psychology and counseling courses are taught by practicing clinicians who meet the academic qualifications to teach.

Optional Accelerated Degree

Accelerated programs are tightly structured courses of study in which students take graduate courses during the undergraduate degree program. Once students graduate with their respective undergraduate degrees, the graduate courses then transfer into the master’s degree program allowing the student to complete that degree in a shortened time frame.

Qualified students in the B.S. in Psychology/Counseling program may apply for an accelerated degree program to earn their Counseling (M.A.) degree in an additional two years instead of the typical three years.
