Social and Behavioral Sciences

In the social sciences we strive to understand human behavior and relationships. We ask, “why do people act the way they do?” We look closely at the way people interact with each other, make decisions, and structure their environment.

Interdisciplinary Studies

With interdisciplinary studies we start with a particular issue, problem, population, or geographic region, then study it from within the humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences. We know our world is not simple or one-sided, and our thinking should not be either.
