The study of social and behavioral sciences delves into the cultures, behaviors and ideas of mankind.
At Faulkner, the social and behavioral science coursework is taught through the lens of Christianity. Small classes encourage a comfortable atmosphere where lively discussion and debate is the norm. Our students engage in internships, guided field-trips and activity-based research for a broad experience under the advisement of caring professors.
Graduates from our department have gone on to successful careers in government service, research, counseling and teaching. We boast an 80% acceptance rate among those who have applied for graduate schools and law school.
