In 1963 the Behavioral Sciences Department at Andrews University offered its first degree programs in general behavioral sciences, psychology and sociology. Since that time, we have expanded the original offers to include multiple emphases, additional degree areas on the undergraduate level and a graduate degree. The Department averages a total of 80-100 majors per year, making us one of the largest departments at Andrews University. The behavioral sciences are concerned with the study of how human beings think and behave, both as individuals and in social, spiritual and cultural settings.
