Welcome Message from Maria LaPadula, Ph.D.

Chairperson, Department of Behavioral Sciences

Welcome to the department of behavioral sciences, which offers an undergraduate program in behavioral sciences with options in psychology, criminal justice, and sociology/social work.

Behavioral sciences are concerned with how people behave and react in both normal and abnormal situations. Specialists in these fields include psychologists, sociologists, social workers, counselors, and ideally, law enforcement professionals and attorneys who specialize in criminal law. Their work involves helping clients understand their behavior, developing strategies for maintaining or modifying behavior, and guiding clients through the processes required to make these strategies work effectively.

Students who select the psychology option will receive a bachelor's degree in psychology. Those who choose the criminal justice option will receive a bachelor's degree in criminal justice. Students who choose the sociology/social work option will receive a bachelor's degree in behavioral science.

Sincerely,
Maria LaPadula, Ph.D.
Associate Professor and Chairperson
Department of Behavioral Sciences
