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 seeks to build major and minor programs in criminal justice, history, political science, psychology, sociology, and social work in which students are prepared for graduate and /or professional school.
The School 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 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 SAU students.
This is an exciting time to be working and studying in the social and behavioral sciences. We offer a diverse set of courses, research opportunities, and internships in federal, state and local government agencies, and private corporations. These will help you be competitive for advanced or professional degrees in law, international relations and state or local government, or you may choose to use your education as a springboard to a career in industry or public service. In any case, we can help you.
