School of Psychology & Counseling

Do you have a heart for people and a deep desire to make a difference in their lives? The Regent University School of Psychology & Counseling (SPC) can help you turn your desire into a meaningful career. Whether you’re interested in our counseling degrees or our psychology graduate programs, at Regent, you won’t just read about leading-edge mental health theories and treatment approaches, you’ll experience them first-hand through scholarly research, international service opportunities and community partnerships. Our Psy.D. students have the opportunity to practice what they are learning in our state-of-the-art Psychological Services Center. And you’ll be fully engaged and invested in classes and lectures, thanks to a nationally recognized faculty of award-winning practitioners and educators who are clearly invested in your success.

Regent is one of only a handful of Christian institutions who offer programs accredited by both the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP). We are committed to the idea that science and faith do not oppose each other, but in fact, complement one another. Regent-educated clinicians and academicians are solidly grounded in both the science of human behavior and the faith-based principles of restoration and renewal. Ours is a distinctively Christian counseling degree approach, one that not only elevates individual practice, but also the standards of an entire field.
