The Behavioral Science major offers a multidisciplinary approach to the study of human behavior. All students in the major must complete courses designed to expose them to the concepts, theories and research methodologies used in the behavioral sciences. Beginning in the sophomore year, students, in conjunction with their academic advisors, elect to concentrate in one of four areas. The area selected will depend upon the student’s future career or academic aspirations. The four concentration areas are Anthropology, Applied Behavioral Sciences, Gerontology and Human Services.
Internships in Behavioral Science allow students to gain work experience in their field of study, as well as to develop and refine future career goals. Learn more about Behavioral Science internships.
Behavioral Science faculty invite students to collaborate on research projects and welcome initiated collaborations. Learn more about Behavioral Science research.
