"Grace College was my choice for higher education and for my major in psychology, and they prepared me for my current career, strengthened me as a working professional, and helped shape my personal relationship with God and the way I view the world. "
With the encouragement of one of my Grace College professors, I went on to complete a Doctorate of Psychology. I now have a private practice of my own as a result of the education and influence of all the professors I had at Grace College.

"At Grace College, I have had the opportunity to learn about common human behaviors from a wide range of perspectives including a biblical perspective. The professors in the Behavioral Science Department desire to see you grow in both intrapersonal and interpersonal skills. They challenge me to test my knowledge and apply concepts and skills I have learned. I am being equipped to seek the value Christ has given us all and help others see it in themselves."
