The Department of Behavioral Sciences offers undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree programs in psychology, criminal justice, and sociology/social work, as well as a minor in psychology. We strive to provide excellence in teaching and mentoring of students. Our undergraduate programs are grounded in scientific knowledge and will prepare you for a wide variety of careers in clinical, social, educational, industrial, and law enforcement environments. You will also graduate well prepared for post-graduate study and advanced training in the fields of psychology, counseling, social work, sociology, law, and criminal justice. Our program offers many internship choices and one-on-one research opportunities with faculty, and we urge you to get involved in one of our honor societies or the Behavioral Sciences Club, which offer meaningful interactions with fellow students and faculty.
