School of Psychology & Counseling


Understanding People

At LeTourneau, we offer a variety of degree programs in psychology, allowing students to customize their experience to fit their interests. Students learn to practice psychology by applying learned theories and principles while keeping the value of Christian morals and spirituality in mind, making a difference in lives of people in every area of society.

Our small class sizes also allow students to get the individualized instruction LeTourneau is known for. This personal attention prepares both undergraduate and graduate students for a number of careers, including clinical psychology, counseling, child development and missions. If LETU undergraduate psychology students are planning to continue their studies at a graduate level, LETU provides ideal preparation.
