About

Do you want to be a psychologist, counselor or researcher? GC’s rigorous psychology program has an excellent track record of admission into psychology graduate programs. In fact, we rank in the upper 26 percent of all colleges and universities for the number of graduates who earn psychology doctoral degrees. And, if you consider all the psychology alums who have applied to any graduate program — in psychology, social work, business or law — 100 percent have been accepted into graduate school!

How do we do it? Our program features small classes, enthusiastic faculty and a strong emphasis on scientific research methodology. At GC, you will take a broad range of courses in cognitive, social, developmental and clinical psychology, among other social sciences courses. You’ll also find ample research opportunities and internships for hands-on learning. You could assist developmentally disabled adults at Elkhart County Clubhouse or counsel students at a local elementary school. In addition, you’ll participate in regular psychology gatherings, where you’ll meet guest speakers, share research and build strong ties with the Goshen community.
