Build a Foundation in Behavioral Health

The A.S. in Behavioral Science provides an interdisciplinary approach to understanding human behavior within a global world view. Your courses will introduce you to the biological, psychological, social, and cultural variables of human behavior and within each concentration area, you’ll gain deeper-level knowledge.
