Psychology: A Christian Perspective Online Class

High School graduation is around the corner and there’s an important elective graduates 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 with Dr. Tim Rice as their favorite High School class.

Dr. Rice’s class makes students better apologists who can confidently bring the 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.
