Psychology Programs

Noelle Brechbiel ’22
Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC)
Student, Multnomah University

As a 2022 graduate, Noelle Brechbiel spent most of her college years navigating an unprecedented global pandemic with the rest of the world. It was a challenging time for her mental health, but the psychology classes at Multnomah helped her process and heal.
She was drawn to the close-knit environment, classes, and professors. She shared, “I had looked at other colleges, but when I visited Multnomah, I felt like I was super connected.”
In the years to come, Noelle was grateful to the professors who invested in her life. As a psychology major, Noelle especially benefited from learning practical skills for caring for her mental health and well-being.
Today, Noelle is pursuing her career dream in the Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) program at Multnomah. She is still using the knowledge she gained during her time as an undergrad and continuing to grow and develop her voice as an advocate for herself and others.

Why Study at Multnomah?

Founded in 1936 as Multnomah School of the Bible, we believe your education should be grounded in Scripture. We seek to draw closer to God’s Word in every aspect of your experience — in classes, athletics, and especially your time in community with friends and professors.

Among our faculty are world-renowned biblical scholars, business experts, master science communicators, and more. However, it’s their commitment and care for their students that make them stand above the rest. With opportunities for faculty mentorship, your professors will be there for you at every step of your educational experience.

Portland is a beautiful and vibrant city in the Pacific Northwest. With oceans to the west, mountains to the east, and world-class food just blocks away, you’ll have easy access to anything you want to explore. Service also lies at the heart of Multnomah, and living in Portland brings opportunities to engage with the community through university events like Day of Outreach.

With an undergraduate population just under 400 students, you get to truly know your classmates, and we like it that way. Our close-knit community creates opportunities for discipleship, lifelong friendship, and developing connections that will facilitate your career and personal development for the rest of your life.

Sometimes you need more than great professors, caffeine, and friends to get you through college. That’s where our campus resources come in to play. Multnomah is equipped with a student counseling and wellness center that provides Christ-centered, culturally responsive, psychologically sound therapy. Additionally, we provide a student success center, career services, and disability resources.
