Program Description:

Have you always wondered why people act the way they do? Do you want to learn more? Well, our human relations major is one of only a few of its kind in the nation. And it may be just right for you.  

You’ll learn more about human behavior by studying anthropology, psychology and sociology. But you’ll also go beyond the classroom by getting some real-world experience. You can intern in a senior citizen center, a youth home, a hospital or the local federal prison. And, you can even get credit by traveling on the annual trip to Mexico to check out the ancient Maya sites. 

With your human relations degree, you’ll be ready for a career in many fields. Our recent graduates are working as archaeology technicians, police and juvenile corrections officers, mental health coordinators and teachers. Or, if you decide to go to graduate school, you’ll be prepared to do that, too.

Faculty in the program specialize in archaeology, gender, family, religion, deviance and criminology, childhood and adolescence, not only here in the United States but across the World in different societies.
