The rise of secular humanism to prominence in the scientific community has led to the mantra that there is no place for Christianity in scientific study. This assignment will explore the potential conflict of Christianity, science, and ethics, and will guide the learner to make conclusions regarding the appropriate influence of the Christian worldview on psychology research ethics.

- Is Christianity specifically incompatible with Ph.D. research in the field of psychology? Why or why not?
- Is the Christian worldview compatible with research ethics in the field of psychology? Why or why not?
- To what extent should the Christian worldview influence the type of psychology research conducted and the ethics of that research? Why?
- To what extent do you perceive that the Christian worldview will influence a dissertation research? Why?
