Welcome to Psychology at Lee University

Lee University offers two BA degrees in Psychology: PSYA, a general degree track, and PYAT, a track with teacher certification (grades 9-12) for those who plan to pursue School Counseling. Psychology is part of the Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSS) and offices for psychology faculty are located on the third floor of the Humanities Center.

At Lee University, psychology is presented from a Biblical perspective. Psychology courses are taught by Christians who integrate scriptural principles with the curriculum. Sometimes students have questions about how Christianity and psychology can mix. What better field could a Christian pursue than one that seeks to help people recover from such problems as mental illness, substance addiction, emotional distress, and various forms of abuse? Ministry involves meeting people’s needs, and that is what psychologists do.

With the growing pressures in our society today, and the increasing demand for professionals in the people-helping field, the need has never been greater for Christian psychologists. They bring an extra dimension to the therapeutic setting that secular psychologists do not.

If you have a burden for people and you feel the Lord directing you to this type of ministry, then Lee University is an excellent place to lay the foundation for a career in psychology.
