Department Description

The New College’s School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, a vibrant school that explores the intersection of human behavior and science.

Through challenging coursework that explores how the human mind works, students and faculty seek to understand how we communicate with one another, how and why we organize into cultural and political groups as it relates to vital causes and issues, and ultimately how we make sense of our world and the many places we occupy within it.

Students work with accomplished faculty who conduct cutting-edge research and are adept at translating knowledge to both undergraduate and graduate classrooms. Students work together to inspire and motivate one another along their journeys as they pursue their academic and career goals.

Graduates are prepared for work in marketing, public relations, behavioral health, politics, psychology, research and data analysis, consulting and sociology, or in any field where excellent communication and critical thinking skills are highly valued. Our graduates are also well prepared to seek advance degrees in a variety of disciplines including communication, psychology, and the law.
