“The Psychology program at Hellenic changed how I viewed both Psychology and my faith. The program created a deeper understanding of people which accounts for the whole person, and helped me to find the balance between the scientific and the spiritual. I was given an opportunity that I am forever grateful for, to find God through my education in a way that opened both my mind and my heart.”-2022 Psychology & Human Development Graduate

“The Psychology and Human Development program at Hellenic College taught me how to be a more compassionate person. I learned that it is my duty to meet people where they are and help them along their journey by being supportive, caring, and most of all, loving. No matter where I end up—clinical work, education, or anything else—I know that my experience in the Psychology and Human Development program will serve me well.”-2022 Psychology & Human Development Graduate
“Our Christian practice can best be revived if the conversation between psychology and spirituality proceeds within each person and recognizes the importance of individual growth and faith development on a personal and community level.”
