Degree Programs

Majors develop research and writing skills, problem solving and higher-order thinking ability related to analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating information. Majors find jobs in administrative support, public affairs, education, business, sales, helping professions, service industries, health, the biological sciences, and computer programming. Many work as employment counselors, corrections counselor trainees, interviewers, personnel analysts, probation officers, and writers. Many Majors also attend graduate school.

Behavioral Sciences Majors cannot use any Behavioral Sciences courses to fulfill both major and minor requirements. For courses that are common to both the major and minor, advisor-approved and reasonable electives must be used to fill the minor requirement. Work closely with your advisor to assure that you are adhering to this policy.

Test out is not available for any course offered by the division.

Exit Requirement

All graduating seniors with the exception of biology/psychology, industrial/organizational psychology, and Human Services majors must take the senior assessment prior to graduation approval.
