The mission of the Behavioral Sciences Department is to produce students who are critical thinkers, i.e. students who can examine various propositions, theoretical statements and social assertions they encounter with an analytical eye and a healthy skepticism.
Further, students all gain an understanding of basic research methods and techniques employed by psychologists, sociologists and cultural anthropologists. In addition, we seek to assure that our students are acquainted with the fundamental theoretical foundations of their respective fields of study.
This concentration prepares students to transfer to four-year colleges or universities for bachelors' degrees in the behavioral sciences.
