Faculty Information

The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences provides general education courses and degrees in the subject areas of Anthropology, Behavioral Science, Christian Behavioral Science, Psychology and Sociology. Bachelor of Arts degrees are available in five majors: Anthropology, Behavioral Sciences, Christian Behavioral Science, Psychology, and Sociology. Students should consult with department faculty for help in selecting the best major for their graduate or career goals. All majors prepare students for entry-level positions in the behavioral sciences and for admission to graduate programs in Anthropology, Psychology, Sociology, or Social Work.

The faculty of the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences believes that academic training best serves the student when it is generalized across the various disciplines of the University. Students are therefore encouraged to broaden their educational experience by examining interdisciplinary aspects of their major and intentionally integrating their world view and religious perspective. Understanding human behavior from the unique perspective of integrating the relationship of material, cognitive, and spiritual aspects of reality are a significant part of the instruction and curriculum of the division.

Behavioral and social science graduates can find entry-level employment in business, education and government positions. Most degrees prepare the student for graduate work and professional life in the behavioral and social science fields.
