Students in the Department of Behavioral Sciences are transformed by academic experiences that integrate interdisciplinary knowledge about behavior, relationships, institutions, and organizations.
The Department of Behavioral Sciences focuses on the disciplines of psychology, criminology, sociology,
behavioral neuroscience, community health, and animal studies. These disciplines address different
dimensions of behavior that can be integrated to form a comprehensive understanding of our human
experiences. A primary goal of the department is to help students function as effective, informed global
citizens. To this end, the principles of human behavior are presented within the context of an
interdisciplinary liberal arts educational program.
