School of Social and Behavioral Sciences

The School of Social and Behavioral Sciences engages students in cutting-edge scholarship to better understand the world through understanding people – their beliefs, stories, cultures, organizations, friends, family, thoughts, hopes, feelings, and actions. Our synergistic blend of academic disciplines, perspectives, and methods enhances the capacity to tackle problems, intimate and large-scale, and to improve lives in local and global communities. Over fifty research-active faculty lead a dozen undergraduate, masters, and doctoral degrees, including internationally-recognized programs in Social Justice & Human Rights, Forensic Psychology, and Social Technologies. From day one, our students are at the front-line of research and innovation, conducting experiments within high-tech psychology, social media, and gaming labs. Through these hands-on research experiences and small-classroom teaching, they gain perspective, context, and skills that they will carry throughout their lives, wherever they’ll take on the world.
