Program description

The Applied Behavioral and Social Sciences program is designed for students interested in human behavior and in exploring the many and varied facets of the human condition.

At the heart of the behavioral and social sciences is the attempt to understand human beings, both individually and in groups. Our goal is to provide students with an understanding of their own historical context, increase their knowledge of individual behavior, and facilitate their ability to comprehend our rapidly changing social worlds -- encouraging the recognition and appreciation of individual, social and cultural diversity.

Disciplines in the behavioral and social sciences use approaches that range from the scientific to the philosophical, from the experimental to the theoretical. Integral to all the disciplines, however, is the development and application of problem-solving skills, which in combination with other academic skills, enable students to think analytically and to communicate clearly and persuasively.

Students interested in human behavior and in exploring the many and varied facets of the human condition will find many exciting opportunities within the courses and programs offered by the department.

The age-old questions of why we are the way were are, and why we do what we do, have continued to fascinate humans through the ages. Psychology seeks answers for those questions, and others, through the scientific study of the relationship between emotions, thoughts, behavior and the environment.

Students can specialize in Psychology or Sociology.

Psychology
Bachelor's graduates in psychology may find jobs in human resources, education, public affairs, mental health facilities, and social services. A degree in psychology is also a good choice for careers in other fields because employers value psychology graduates' research, writing, and analytic skills as well as their understanding of people. Some graduates pursue a graduate degree, Master's or PhD, to prepare them for careers as researchers, psychologists and professors.

Sociology
Courses in anthropology and sociology (ANSO) are designed to help students develop a multicultural understanding of the human experience and the analytical skills necessary for critically evaluating the diversity of human belief systems.
