The School of Social & Behavioral Sciences exists at the intersection of human behavior and science, bringing scientific rigor to bear on human nature. Our faculty, students, and courses seek to unlock the unlimited possibilities that exist in the social/lived world — how the human mind works, how we communicate with one another, how and why we organize into cultural and political groups in response to vital causes and issues, and ultimately how we make sense of our world and the many places we occupy within it.In particular the School offers Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science degree programs in Communication, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology as well as an interdisciplinary BA/BS in Social & Behavioral Sciences. We also host minors in Interdisciplinary Organizational Studies, Sociocultural Anthropology, Communication, Political Science, Psychology, Public Relations & Strategic Communication, and Sociology.
If you seek an academically rigorous, career-focused, student-centered experience — then you should examine our academic programs and faculty/staff profiles more closely.
