Current Offerings of the Faculty
Faculty of Behavioral Sciences
The Behavioral sciences focus on the systematic investigation, study, and analysis of human behavior by means of scientific experimentation and naturalistic observation to achieve objective conclusions. The behavioral sciences border and link to the natural sciences like biology and physiology at one end and the social sciences such as sociology and anthropology on the other end. Although all these fields concern the study of human behavior and conditions, they differ in their level of analyses and foci, each asking the question of why people think, act, live, and relate as they do. Examples of behavioral sciences include clinical psychology, neuropsychology, psychobiology, cognitive psychology, and forensic psychology.

They may also choose to focus on behavioral medicine.
