Greetings from the hilltop!

The School of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSS) is a vibrant community of faculty and student scholars representing the disciplines of criminal justice, global studies, political science, environmental science and policy, history, psychology, behavioral neuroscience, sociology, and social work.

In our courses, research opportunities and internships, we support our students and embrace a mission of inclusive excellence. We see value in diverse voices, strive for equity and believe our students can change the world.

Skills — often cited as critical to employers — such as critical thinking, problem-solving, emotional intelligence and communication, are at the heart of the BSS learning experience. In addition, BSS students work closely with faculty, study internationally, gain leadership experience and connect with future employers.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our student successes, faculty research interests and accomplishments, and engaging experiential learning opportunities. We are fully invested in your success and will work with you to discover, grow and achieve to become your best self.
