Behavioral Sciences Major

School of Arts and Sciences

The Behavioral Sciences attempt to explore the complex nature of the human experience and encounter the great questions of humanity: What does it mean to be human? Who am I? Who are they? What is the religious life of man? Why is there misery? What is the pursuit of the good life? How then, shall we live?

In investigating these core questions we discover how individuals think about and relate to themselves and others. The Behavioral Science Major at Concordia University Irvine utilizes the tools of anthropology, psychology, and sociology to create a foundation to investigate the dynamic between self and society; agency and structure; and nature and culture.

As a major in Psychology and Behavioral Science, you are trained through research methods courses, practicum experiences, and a rigorous curriculum. Our graduates engage in lives of service to the community as psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists, lawyers, social workers, nurses, demographers, and policy analysts. Students who continue on to earn their graduate degree choose programs such as Masters in Social Work (MSA), Marriage and Family Therapy, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Clinical Psychology, Counseling, Law School, Educational Psychology, and Seminary.

The Behavioral Science major offers you the opportunity to select an emphasis to serve others intelligently, ethically, and faithfully through your God-given vocations in society and in the church.
