Social and Behavioral Sciences


The Social and Behavioral Sciences prepares students planning to go into the profession of social and behavioral science. The program also enhances the applications of Social and Behavioral Science Principles in everyday life and promotes academic foundations for transferring to a university or four year college.

The Social Work program improves skills, knowledge, and predispositions needed for becoming a technician or para-professional in a social welfare program. It enables transferring to a university or a four year college. Some courses are equivalent to a third year or fourth year college level course. Students who plan to transfer to a university or a four year college should check with that institution in selecting Social Work courses.
