A Message from Dean Francis B. Harrold

Welcome to the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences at Weber State University. 

The social and behavioral sciences are all about people, past and present — why they behave as they do, how their groups, societies and cultures interact with each other and their environment, and how they change. 

The social sciences are an important part of the liberal education that every WSU student receives. Our nine majors and 19 minors are gateways to graduate and professional school and a great variety of careers that involve understanding behavior and working with people, ranging from social work to psychology. Our Master of Criminal Justice program prepares both current and aspiring professionals to advance in their careers. Our dedicated faculty members are recognized scholars in their fields and work closely with students in hands-on learning experiences, such as internships and student research. If you are interested in what makes people tick, explore our website and see whether one of our programs is for you.
