Online B.A. in Social and Behavioral Sciences

University of Southern Maine

The Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS) degree program integrates perspectives from psychology, sociology, and anthropology as it provides a foundation for careers in diverse fields including social services, mental health, law and public policy, early childhood care, and education.

Designed to enhance students’ understanding of the psychosocial and cultural influences shaping individual lives and social institutions, the curriculum interweaves interdisciplinary courses in liberal arts (Core Curriculum) with foundational SBS courses. A variety of courses provide more specific professional applications and foster engagement in civic life and ethical citizenship.

Blending required courses, electives, and an internship experience, students will have the opportunity to gain the knowledge and abilities needed to be effective in their personal and civic lives and chosen careers.
