Programs in the Behavioral Sciences Department explore the ways humans behave, both as individuals and as groups, and the impact of this behavior on society.  Each major provides a different lens through which to view these topics.  Anthropology examines cultural differences and similarities; sociology examines the relationships and interactions between humans and social structures; psychology examines individual human behavior and intelligences.

The Wellness & Alternative Medicine major combines aspects of all three of these disciplines with the study of biology, chemistry, anatomy and other sciences to deliver a practical education in a variety of healing and health practies used throught the world.


The Behavioral Sciences Department offers courses with the following designators: ANT (anthropology), CSV (community service/volunteer), PSY (psychology), SSC (social science), SOC (sociology) and WAM (wellness & alternative medicine). See full Course Descriptions . The department also offers a Master of Arts program in counseling; refer to the JSC Graduate Catalog for information.
