The Department of Psychology, Sociology and Social Work includes the disciplines of psychology, sociology and social work with majors in each area. Psychology's scientific study of behavior and mental processes includes application of psychological principles to human conditions. Sociology is the systematic study of human society and the influences of social systems on human behavior. The professional program in social work prepares students in helping individuals, groups and communities enhance or restore social functioning.

Studies in behavioral sciences offer diverse perspectives to students who want to learn more about individual and group behavior. Fundamentals of the disciplines are stressed, and students learn the importance of developing problem-solving and research skills. They learn ways of relating to issues confronting individuals and society. The behavioral sciences provide relevant preparation for many different vocations. Graduate study and a career in psychology, sociology or social work also may be the ultimate objective.
