"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."
