The behavioral science major will no longer accept new majors for students that enter after the 2017-18 catalog.
This major provides an opportunity to study human behavior from the perspectives of anthropology, psychology, and sociology. Two emphasis areas are available to students majoring in Behavioral Science: General and Ethnic Studies.
Courses in the Behavioral Science Program integrate theory and application into a broad foundation of both scientific and humanistic knowledge about humans both as individuals and as members of society. All students complete an internship and an original empirical senior thesis as part of their major requirements. Emphasis is placed on the development of critical thinking skills and the application of values to the content of the behavioral science curriculum. The knowledge and skills gained during the program are crucial to successful performance in graduate school and are also highly valued by a wide variety of potential employers who hire behavioral science majors directly after graduation.
