Hear From Graduates
My experience with Biola's psychology program has been rewarding...I would encourage other adult learners who have been considering going back to school to give it some serious thought, clear out your schedule as much as possible and then go for it. It has been well worth it.
The flexibility of Biola's online psychology program allowed me to complete my degree while working and doing ministry. I am so grateful for the faculty’s concern of my educational goals and spiritual well-being along the way.
