Recent advances in the understanding of brain function and how it relates to behavior have led to the emergence, development and rapid expansion of a new interdisciplinary scientific field of biopsychology.
A major objective for this biopsychology bachelor’s degree program is to provide a deeper understanding of how the physiology of the body functions in behavior, and also how defects in such function affect behavior. If you’re interested in pursuing a biopsychology major in PA, Geneva’s B.S. in biopsychology is a joint effort of the college’s biology and psychology departments.
This faith-based biopsychology degree program is designed to engage the area of neuroscience with Christian critique, discernment and dialogue, thereby advancing Geneva College’s mission of training students to be used by God to engage and transform modern culture.
The current academic climate in the biopsychology field is strongly reflective of evolutionary and reductionist philosophy, which claims a naturalistic explanation for all biological and behavioral phenomena. At Geneva College, we want to join the conversation and bring the metaphysical reality of the triune God to bear on the explanations of mind and body.
