Social and Behavioral Sciences

Welcome to the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences

The School of Social and Behavioral Sciences endeavors to provide every student in our courses with key elements of a social science education, emphasizing critical thought and analytical skills appropriate to the course level. The School of Social and Behavioral Sciences seeks to build major and minor programs in Criminal Justice, Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, History, Political Science, Public Policy, Psychology, Sociology and Social Work in which students are prepared for graduate and/or professional school.

The School of Social and Behavioral Sciences encourages applied and experiential learning that prepares students for careers as leaders in public service and private sector employment. To further its social science focus, the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences contributes heavily to the university’s principled support of international study via intense upper level course work, general survey courses and extensive travel abroad teaching/learning experiences, which are open to all Saint Augustine's University students.
