The Social and Behavioral Sciences department seeks to equip students with the knowledge and skills for a lifetime of learning and service in the fields of social science.

Psychology students learn to think critically and apply psychological concepts in a decidedly Christian manner that fosters empathy, facilitates healthy relationships, as well as disseminates culturally relevant research in the professional field of their choice.

Program design, projected outcomes, and course curriculum content are aligned with the guidelines set forth by Tabor College and the American Psychological Association.
