The Behavioral Science baccalaureate is a 120 credit (4 year) degree that is an integration of anthropology, psychology, and sociology. This major is designed for students interested in careers in the Community Behavioral Mental Health fields or pre-graduate studies in Psychology, Social Work, or applied anthropology/psychology/ sociology. For career planning, it is recommended students take a minor such as Criminal Justice or Education, or specialty courses such as the MHRT-C (social work) sequence.
The Behavioral Sciences explore the interrelationships of the individual, the group and community, social institutions, human biology and psychology. Our program’s mission is to provide the advanced skills, knowledge, and experiences needed by entry-level professionals in social work and human services, as well as to prepare our graduates to be able to pursue advanced degrees in the behavioral sciences.
