One of the distinctives of the School of Psychology, Family, and Community at Seattle Pacific University is the wide variety of opportunities for students to engage in current research projects. These include involvement on multiple levels: as participants, members of ongoing research teams, research assistants, and independent researchers.

Why I Teach at SPU

Baine Craft, Professor of Psychology

“Seattle Pacific University stands in a unique place in higher education. We are small enough that students can interact directly with faculty, but we are big enough to provide students with exceptional job skills and opportunities such as research and internships. All of this with an emphasis on understanding, integrating, and practicing one’s faith within a specific academic discipline. For me, I love that balance, and that is why I teach at SPU.”
