School of Psychology, Family, and Community


Discovery, Integration, Application. Faculty members in the School of Psychology, Family, and Community (SPFC) are committed teachers and mentors, active scholars and practitioners. We seek students who are excited to learn, prepared to work hard, and who want to make a difference in the world. Perhaps you’re one of those students.

Graduate Programs

Each of the four graduate psychology programs at SPU is unique, from Industrial-Organizational Psychology or Marriage and Family Therapy to Medical Family Therapy and a doctoral program in Clinical Psychology. Each shares a common core commitment to rigorous learning standards informed by faith. They’ll help prepare you to serve with character and competence in a broken world.

Undergraduate Programs

At SPU, our goal isn’t just to provide you with solid academic and experiential grounding in psychology. You’ll get that. But we also seek to motivate and inspire you, while helping you value yourself as a person of worth, created in God’s image. Ultimately we want to equip you to serve others and make a positive difference in the world.

Centers and Initiatives

Centers and special initiatives at SPFC are designed by people with a passion for serving others in ways not often seen elsewhere. Centers and initiatives include the Center for Leadership Research and Development, the Initiative for Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, the Living Well Initiative, and the SPFC Advisory Board.
