About Behavioral Sciences:

Psychology, Psychology with a Track in Counseling, Child Development (with and without Teacher Licensure), Neuroscience with a Track in Psychology, ASL & Deaf Studies, and ASL-English Interpreting comprise the Behavioral Sciences at Maryville College.  All require a working knowledge of human behavior and the application of that study to a variety of situations or special populations, whether working in the classroom as an elementary school teacher, contributing to mental health or community organizations, or interpreting for the Deaf. 

The Division emphasizes a hands-on approach to learning, so most classes incorporate opportunities to be actively engaged with the subject matter.  Psychology students will do laboratory and field experiments, Child Development students will observe and interact with children, and ASL and Interpreting students will interact with members of the Deaf community.
