Careers for behavioral sciences graduates can be found in education, corporate, nonprofit, government, criminal justice – virtually any organization where overall analysis of human behavior and culture is utilized.
Behavioral science encompasses the study of the motivations, limitations, and potential of human activity, through such disciplines as psychology, social work, and sociology. In seeking to understand the dynamics of individual choices that, collectively, become societal norms, students are brought to a better understanding of the “how” and “why” of human behavior and social activities.
A Living Learning Community is an environment where students with shared academic majors or lifestyle interests can live together and collaborate. Located in Cooper Hall, our academic Living Learning Communities have access to community rooms equipped with the latest technologies, study rooms, and a break room.
The Department of Behavioral Sciences is proud to utilize the brand-new Lawrence D. Bromley Training Center, to educate the next generation of law enforcement officers.
