Counseling and Psychology

Welcome to MACU's Counseling and Psychology Program Page!

Proverbs 15:22 says, "Without consultation, plans are frustrated, But with many counselors they succeed." (NASB) Unfortunately, in our fractured world people are bombarded with often confusing and ungodly counsel and advice. There is a desperate need for Christian people who are trained to assist these people. Mid-Atlantic Christian University (MACU) is one of the few schools that offers an undergraduate program that includes a variety of counseling courses in addition to psychology. Many of our graduates have found our program to be excellent preparation for graduate school, while others have found the program to help them be better servants in the local church. If you are interested in helping people with the struggles that are common to mankind, you will find this degree vital in reaching your career goals.
