Behavioral Sciences Program


Behavioral science majors develop an interdisciplinary perspective on human behavior and an understanding of the psychological, social and cultural dimensions to being human in a complex society. Offered cooperatively by the Departments of Anthropology, Psychology and Sociology, the Behavioral Science Program is housed in the Department of Anthropology, which oversees academic advising. The program prepares graduates for a variety of jobs that require working with social science data and with people. Many of our alumni have pursued graduate work in health care, social work, human resources, and other fields.

The Department of Anthropology provides all academic advising for the Behavioral Science Program. Students are encouraged to call the Department of Anthropology, (408) 924-5710, with any questions about the program, including the availability of advisors.
