Program Description

Price University’s Biblical Psychology program is its soulogical treatment discipline developed by its founder with a twofold purpose in mind. The first is to be an instrument of personal soul cleansing and divine healing that enables Christians, especially those called to the Messiah’s service to enter it with upright souls that concur with and comprehend His righteousness.

The second purpose is that once they themselves are cleansed psychologically they can replicate that cleansing in others. Biblical Psychology is predicated on the Maker’s psychology; it opens and explores the soul to examine His Creator workmanship. Subject matter and sessions span the soul’s inception in Genesis 1:26; 2:7 all the way to 3 John 2 stopping to explore its development, evolution, and demise. Along the way, studies contrast Biblical Psychology with secular psychology to compare the two.

The Master of Arts in Biblical Psychology program is a next step program from the bachelor’s that instructs students in the principles of practical psychology as prescribed by scripture for the treatment and healing of the human soul. Students are brought into God’s Creation and knowledge of the soul from its inception to its installation in the human body. Emphases are placed on the soul’s precarnate state and programs to its fall into doom and redemption by Jesus Christ.

Students learn the soul’s natural condition and predisposition to comprehend its Creator purpose for this entity, as it pertains to the soul’s earthly and afterlife destiny. Program materials include scripture and other subject related content for the broadest educational experience and informational exposure
