Academic Calendars

Community and Behavioral Health

Community and Behavioral Health

The Community and Behavioral Health (CBH) degree is interdisciplinary in nature and focuses on the sociological and psychological factors associated with physical, mental, and social health. The degree is designed to meet the needs of students with interests in the health-related fields of medicine, dentistry, nursing, community health, health psychology, medical social work, and rehabilitation counseling. This program allows students to customize a program of study from electives in both psychology and sociology to meet their academic and career goals.

The degree in CBH prepares graduates for employment opportunities in a wide range of health fields, including the growing fields of gerontology and veteran re-entry. Employers in health-related settings prefer students with interdisciplinary degrees rooted in the sociological, psychological, and anthropological traditions. These disciplines provide students with an understanding of the broader social context, as well as the dynamics of major social inequalities (such as race, class, gender, aging, and diversity), that are so important in these settings, making them more desirable employees.
