Members of our school are committed to excellence in teaching and research and SBS is proud of the accomplishments of our faculty, students, and graduates. We are a research-oriented department where our priority is the discovery of new knowledge and understandings about human behavior, social issues and cultural processes; the application of that knowledge to the betterment of physical, mental, and social health; and the transmission of that knowledge to our students and the community of Arizona. Students have the opportunity to participate in faculty-student collaborative research projects, explore cross-cultural and global perspectives in their courses, access the latest computer technology for projects and assignments, and apply what they have learned in a variety of community-based internship sites across the Phoenix metropolitan area.
