Education Mission

Since its inception in 1960, the Department of Behavioral Science has provided basic, clinical, and behavioral science instruction for students in the College of Medicine, as well as interdisciplinary health-related clinical research training to students enrolled in many graduate programs on campus (eg, Anthropology, Communication, Education, Psychology, Public Policy and Administration, Nursing, Nutritional Sciences, Rehabilitation Science, Sociology, and Social Work).

More recently, the Department’s educational programming has expanded to include courses in the behavioral and social sciences for undergraduate honors and pre-health professions students and graduate and certificate programs in Clinical and Translational Science.
