If you’re planning to attend this university and don’t know what you’ll be studying, I’m here to help identify the top majors according to the website EduRank. In case you had a major in mind and it wasn’t included on this list, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good one. It just means that some students weren’t into it that much. Regardless of your program/major choice, make sure you are interested in it and can see yourself pursuing a career involving it in the future. 

Now, let’s take a look at Redeemer University’s top 5 programs/majors. 

  1. Psychology

Here you can see that psychology is the number one choice. There seems to be some interest in this program/major among students at this school. You will be able to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology upon graduation with this major. Even if you are set on a different major, you can minor in psychology if you want some expertise in this field. 

Surely you are wondering what makes this major so interesting, and why it is ranked number one. Well, do you ever wonder why you do the things you do? If so, you might want to think about taking psychology courses or even majoring/minoring in it. The study of psychology at this university means studying the full human being created in God’s image through all the “horizontal” and crucial “vertical” aspects of human nature. In contrast to other post-secondary institutions in surrounding areas, Redeemer University teaches psychology with a more God-centered focus, while other schools teach it with a more all-encompassing focus.

Take advantage of the many options this university offers. Just because these programs are more popular with students doesn’t mean they’re easier to learn and pass. Discover what interests you.
