Understand the human experience.

Investigate human problems. Assist human functioning.

The Department of Behavioral Sciences prepares students to investigate and evaluate the human experience and to develop skills of intervention, prevention, and protection accompanied by the integration of faith and discipline.

The Department is committed to providing students with a sound educational experience wherein they are enabled to learn theories and practical applications, think critically and integrate their Christian faith with their chosen discipline.

Our graduates have pursued master’s degrees and doctorate degrees. They work in the mental health field. They are counselors, church staff, social workers, psychologists, teachers, and college professors. Some have gone on to own and run their own businesses. Others have gone on to law school, physical therapy, and other professional training programs.
