Concentrations BS Community and Behavioral Health

The Program Students in our community & behavioral health program want to help people and organizations promote physical, social and emotional well-being, as well as prevent disease and improve their community. Their studies draw on several fields— sociology, psychology, anthropology—so that they can design, implement and evaluate solutions to individual and public health problems. The result: public health strategies that bring about positive change. Our program’s focus is on the sociological and psychological factors associated with physical, mental, and social health. With an interdisciplinary approach, our faculty give students an understanding of issues such as drug and alcohol abuse, childhood obesity, and teen sexuality, as well as the broader social context in which these problems occur. For example, CBH students will come to understand how race, class, gender, aging, and diversity play a role in addressing individual and community health challenges. Employers in health-related fields prefer hiring graduates whose interdisciplinary studies have prepared them to find the answers to problems associated with health and well being.

Students can create a specialized degree program that mirrors their individual strengths, interests, and career goals by selecting from a variety of electives offered in psychology and sociology. Students pursuing a nursing degree may choose a community and behavioral health minor to expand and enhance their career options.

Career Opportunities Students graduating with a degree in community and behavioral health have the opportunity to select careers in a variety of settings that include public, voluntary, and private community health organizations. Potential career opportunities include roles as: • case manager • counselor • educator • medical social services worker • nursing home administrator • health promotion and prevention programs administrator Students may also choose to attend graduate school to continue studies in medical, dental, social work, sociology, or psychology.

Life on campus is enriched by a wide variety of events and activities, including the Wildcats’ championship-winning intercollegiate athletics program and a weekly menu of intramurals, concerts, comedians, and more.
