Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences

The behavioral and social sciences round out your healthcare or science education—helping you grasp how people from different backgrounds think and interact. Our department features undergraduate and graduate programs in a range of disciplines, from psychology and medical anthropology to communications and sociology. Here, expert faculty help you apply practical skills, engaging you on their clinical and research projects. Whatever your career path, you’ll graduate understanding communication, human behavior, and the secrets of social interaction.

The behavioral and social sciences focus on human behavior at the individual and collective level. You will understand yourself, your family, your friends, your community, and our increasingly connected world by studying the behavioral and social sciences.
