About Us

The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Northwest University educates individuals to serve within the mental health and human services professions both locally and internationally. The college is home to the School of Psychology and the School of Global Studies, each providing education that is distinctly Christian.

The School of Psychology is built upon the integration of psychology, culture, and social justice. The School of Global Studies is designed to equip people from a wide variety of professions to work for social change and justice across cultural boundaries. With each degree program designed to espouse an ethos of care and service-leadership within the construct of globalization, the college offers both master and doctoral programs in the field of counseling psychology, and a Master of Arts in International Community Development.

In graduate programs, students participate in a variety of culture immersion experiences. Whether serving locally or internationally, graduates of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences are prepared to respond to the call of Christ through service-leadership in a rapidly globalizing world.
