About the Online Psychology Class: A Christian Perspective
High School graduation is just around the corner. There’s an important elective your children need before they leave for college. Psychology is one of the first classes students take in college and one of the most worldview-challenging classes they’ll take.
Year after year, students rate Psychology: A Christian Perspective as their favorite High School class.
Dr. Rice’s online lectures help students take their Christian worldview to Psychology class. Students complete a CLEP-level introductory psychology course – with a distinctly Christian perspective. More importantly, students learn that the Christian worldview is the most logical, internally consistent, and meaningful paradigm for understanding the big questions about the Mind.
After all, it is God’s grandest creation.
