Dean: Robert S. Feldman. Associate Dean for Research: Douglas L. Anderton. Associate Dean for Undergraduate Affairs: Mark A. Lange. Associate Dean for Undergraduate Advising: Richard Wikander. Assistant Dean: Karen Schoenberger.

The following departments and programs in the college offer programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts: Anthropology, Communication, Economics, Journalism, Legal Studies, Political Science, Social Thought and Political Economy, and Sociology. The Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning offers programs in Environmental Design and Landscape Architecture leading to the Bachelor of Science.

The Field

Study in the social and behavioral sciences focuses on human behavior and organization from cultural, social, behavioral, and environmental perspectives. The social sciences try to explain how we are both social and individual beings. Undergraduates in the college are expected to achieve an understanding of culture, society, and individual and social interaction processes, and to learn methods by which knowledge in the social and behavioral sciences is created. Students anchor their knowledge in at least one discipline, but have opportunities to expand this knowledge through various broadening experiences inside and outside the classroom.

Academic Advising Services

All students in the college are encouraged to meet regularly with an academic adviser. Faculty and staff advisers are available to assist students with questions or concerns that they have as they progress through their academic careers. This includes advice on course selection; departmental, college and university requirements; career guidance; assistance with academic problems; and referral information about other services.

Each department in the college has a chief undergraduate adviser who facilitates advising to students concerning the major. Advising regarding college requirements, general academic advising, and information concerning other academic matters (e.g., repeat options, repeat course substitutions, late course adds, late course drops, academic discipline) and programs within the college are handled through the Social and Behavioral Sciences Advising Center, in 128 Thompson Hall.

For further information on advising services please consult the Undergraduate Advising and Requirements Handbook, available at the Social and Behavioral Sciences Advising Center and on the college’s website.

Career Opportunities

Social and behavioral science majors bring to the job market strong critical thinking, analytic, and problem-solving abilities, good human relations skills, and confidence in their ability to learn and grow in new work situations. Graduates have gone on to careers in a wide variety of fields, including law, social work, economics and financial analysis, urban and regional planning, public policy, environmental design, landscape architecture, marketing, education, management, international relations, public relations, television and radio broadcasting, journalism, and advertising.

Career and Field Experience Advising
Students should begin to explore the world beyond the university as early in their undergraduate experience as possible to help ensure a smooth and successful transition from school to work or to further study. Campus Career Services houses the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Career Planning and Field Experience Offices. Staff are available to help students make intelligent, well-informed career choices, and to provide undergraduates with opportunities to obtain experience through internships, cooperative education, and service learning programs.
For further information on career and field experience services, please consult the Undergraduate Advising and Requirements Handbook, available at the Social and Behavioral Sciences Advising Center and on the college’s website.

College Global Education Requirement for the B.A.

The college curriculum provides a framework for students to gain knowledge about individuals, societies, and cultures. All students in Anthropology, Communication, Economics, Journalism, Legal Studies, Political Science, Sociology, and Social Thought and Political Economy, and all Psychology B.A. majors in the College of Natural Sciences are required to satisfy the Global Education requirement, which will provide exposure to diverse cultural perspectives essential to the development of an understanding of society and oneself. Graduates who are more knowledgeable about society and its problems are better prepared to be intelligent and committed citizens of the Commonwealth and the world. There are four options for completion. All options require the completion of at least 15 credits. In general, all options require at least six college-level credits in a foreign language; foreign language coursework must begin at a level beyond high school achievement. Students must declare an option with a college adviser in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Advising Center, at the time they declare a major in the college, by completing a “Requirement and Option Declaration Form.” The completed form must be submitted to the Social and Behavioral Sciences Advising Center. Students who do not declare a Global Education option at the time they declare their major will have an option selected for them by the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Advising. The option choice may be changed at any time, at the same office.

Notes on the Global Education Requirement
a. All credits earned to satisfy the Global Education requirement, except those credits earned to meet the Certificate Option (#4, above), must be in addition to credits earned to satisfy General Education and major requirements, and may not be graded on a Pass/Fail basis.

b. Students with documented learning disabilities which impair language acquisition, and students who are certified by the Disability Services Office as having a significant hearing impairment that seriously limits the auditory reception of language, may substitute non-language courses for language courses. The course substitutions must be approved by the college’s Associate Dean for Undergraduate Advising.

c. Whether foreign language courses are beyond high school achievement levels will be determined by university placement exams.

d. Credit earned through Advanced Placement, CLEP, an SAT II exam, or university foreign language placement testing may be applied to the Global Education requirement.

e. Double-major students will not be subject to the Global Education requirement if their primary major is in the College of Humanities and Fine Arts, the College of Natural Sciences (except for Psychology B.A. majors), the College of Engineering, the Isenberg School of Management, the School of Nursing, or the School of Public Health and Health Sciences. Double-major students should consult with a Global Education adviser as early as possible in their studies.

1. Foreign Language Option: 15 credits of one foreign language beyond high school achievement levels.

2. Regional Study Option: Six credits of one foreign language starting at a level above current ability, as defined previously, and nine credits, in any combination of additional regional foreign language courses or approved courses taught in English which focus on the contemporary culture of the region of the world where the language studied is used. These 9 credits may be chosen from courses in the language department, or in the departments of History, Economics, Anthropology, Political Science, or a related department. The regions, and their approved associated languages and courses, are listed below. The courses listed for this option focus on contemporary cultural understanding and are regularly offered. Experimental, special topics and Five College courses are not included in this list, but may be used to fulfill this requirement with the approval of the Associate Dean. Additionally, all courses offered by the foreign language departments that are conducted in the foreign language may be applied to the regional study option as long as they are within the same regional area. (Even though these language courses are not individually listed, no special approval is required.)
