Contact Bellevue University About This Degree Program
The Behavioral Science accelerated major is a cohort program alternative to the traditional BA/BS if you are interested in the MA or MS in Human Services or other graduate programs designed for licensure preparation in mental health fields. The program incorporates a full range of "learning skills" needed by all professionals and involves you in assessment processes that lead to quality "integrated" performances. The emphasis on activities, assignments, and projects that lead to transferable learning outcomes is a significant educational feature that will prepare you for future opportunities. The foundation knowledge includes major concepts and theories of psychology, sociology, and counseling, with emphasis on applications to examples in human services or to personal areas of improvement. Applied experience is an important component that helps you deepen your reflective understanding of yourself, of diverse populations of clients, and of agencies that provide services. This program in combination with a course in descriptive statistics fully prepares you for the M.A. in Human Services.
