The Behavioral Sciences program prepares students for a wide variety of careers in clinical, social, educational, industrial and law enforcement environments. Graduates of the Bachelor of Science program become eligible for careers as addiction counselors, caseworkers, police officers, customer relations specialists, and human resources personnel. Similarly, graduates are prepared for post-graduate study and advanced training in the fields of psychology, counseling, social work, sociology, criminal justice and law.
The behavioral sciences department offers preprofessional program options in psychology, sociology/social work, and criminal justice, which are designed to prepare students for advanced professional study. Law enforcement scholarship programs make it possible for law enforcement and related criminal justice personnel to earn a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice or to take noncredit courses for personal and job enrichment. Four eight-week cycles and summer sessions are offered.
Behavioral Sciences promotes the various research fields of its faculty, such as biofeedback, drug abuse, group interactions, self-help, social ecology, psychological-physiological interrelationships, relationships between personality and academic achievement, and program evaluation.
