About Liberty

Since 1971, Liberty’s mission as a university has been to provide a world-class educational experience with a solid Christian foundation to equip men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills essential for success in every aspect of life.
Currently, Liberty has some of the highest retention and graduation rates of any leading online university.

Department of Psychology

The Department of Psychology offers three bachelor's degrees. Students in other degree programs can minor in Psychology, Sociology, or Christian Counseling. Liberty University Online offers both an associate and a bachelor's degree in Psychology, and bachelor's degrees in Human Services and Social Work.

Graduates will be well-prepared for careers in various psychological fields as students majoring in psychology are required to participate in a number of Psychology Department Activities that give practical field experience. PsyComm provides additional opportunities for educational growth through programs and interactions with department professors.

Qualified students are invited to join Psi Chi, the Psychology International Honor Society. For upper level students wishing to gain professional experience, the department offers an Internship Program. Students planning to pursue a graduate degree in psychology can apply each year for the Daniels Program, which provides mentoring and training to prepare students for graduate school.

Supported by a residential campus

Liberty has maintained its mission of Training Champions for Christ and continually nurtures an environment of academic excellence, technological innovation, and commitment to Christian values. Given a unique opportunity to recreate the campus with a single architectural vision, Liberty is building excellence from the ground up. A recent $500 million campus upgrade demonstrates a commitment to providing students with state-of-the-art technology and hands-on learning opportunities.
As an extension of Liberty’s Lynchburg, Va.-based campus, online courses allow students to enjoy the same quality course offerings as Liberty’s residential students, but with additional flexibility.

Career-ready degrees

Liberty University offers more than 500 degrees and certificates online and on campus in areas the market demands most, including business, counseling, criminal justice, education, nursing, psychology, and religion.

Christian Foundation

All courses are taught from a Christian worldview by professors who regard teaching as more than a job — it’s their calling.
Liberty’s mission of Training Champions for Christ challenges students to think critically and creatively, becoming men and women of character who will make a positive difference in their communities and in the world.

More Affordable

Liberty University's tuition rates are among the lowest of universities offering online programs.
Consistently rated as one of the top distance educators in the nation, and known for its affordability and exceptional student support, Liberty maintains high student satisfaction as well as impressive retention and graduation rates.

Generous military benefits

With a military community of over 30,000 members enrolled in online courses, Liberty University is proud to honor the men and women who serve our country. Service members, veterans, and their spouses enjoy generous benefits including tuition discounts, free Book Vouchers, fee waivers, and credit for military training.

Trusted support network

Liberty University students also benefit from individualized attention thanks to low student-to-professor ratios.
Students receive free support services and resources to help them succeed, including tutoring services, the Online Writing Center, Career Center, Online Communities, and academic advisors who are dedicated to student success.

Counseling Programs

The Graduate Counseling program, launched in 1981, is committed to providing quality professional training of mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and human service providers from a faith-based perspective. Our training in theory and practice of counseling is designed for those seeking career opportunities in mental health agencies, hospital programs, private practices, church-related or faith-based counseling centers, and other public and private facilities. The department's mission and purpose is extended to students who are not able to attend a more traditional residential program through technologies appropriate to distance learning.

Low Student-to-Professor Ratio

With a low student-to-professor ratio and caring Christian faculty who are invested in individual student success, Liberty fosters an environment in which students are challenged to do their best while celebrating the talents and gifts God has given them.
