About the Program
Studying behavioral science develops your ability to think scientifically about human behavior, develop insight into your own and others' thoughts and behaviors and implement that knowledge in your personal and occupational pursuits. Your exploration of behavioral science can take you beyond cultural and geographic boundaries, inspire your critical and creative thinking and give you the necessary knowledge and skills to approach solving human problems humanely and scientifically. By blending several disciplines, the behavioral sciences offer a broad understanding of the human condition.
CCD's courses cover all the basics of human psychology across the lifespan. In addition, you can explore neuropsychology, forensic psychology, health psychology, positive psychology, the psychology of gender and sex, and more. Opportunities to develop critical thinking, understand the scientific method, and develop as student-researchers are incorporated throughout the program.
CCD is home to one of only two chapters of Psi Beta National Honor Society in psychology in Colorado, a vibrant and award-winning student organization.
