Mission Statement

The Behavioral Science department is a rigorous interdisciplinary program (Anthropology, Family Studies, Psychology, Social Work, Sociology, SUD-C, and Autism studies) that prepares students to make positive contributions in their academic, work, and community settings by developing their understanding of human functioning in various contexts.  We promote and mentor student engagement with each other and with their academic professional, or geographic communities in order to achieve essential learning outcomes.
