The Bachelor of Arts in Behavioral Science at Columbia College is an interdisciplinary degree. Students receive a broad foundation in anthropology, psychology, sociology, and related fields to understand behavior and learn about the effects of human reactions and emotions on social interaction, decision-making, and relationships. They also study cultural norms and standards and understand root causes of social issues such as racism, classism, or gender bias. Students also study deviant behavior for the purposes of investigative/forensic work.

My experience here at CC from freshmen year until now as a senior has been one of freedom to explore life and new points of interest in my major of Behavioral Science as well those outside of it such as music, philosophy, and biology.
