UC Blue Ash College

Behavioral Science Department

Professor Helene Harte working with students

The Behavioral Science Department at UC Blue Ash College houses the academic disciplines of Criminal Justice, Education, Psychology, Social Work, and Sociology.

Though these are separate disciplines, many of their themes overlap, including understanding human behavior, how society impacts human behavior, and the ways in which we can improve the human condition through education, appreciation of diversity, and social movements.

Academic Programs

All of our programs in the Behavioral Science Department are transition-oriented associate degree programs designed for seamless transition to their respective baccalaureate degrees within colleges at the UC Clifton campus. Our Early Care and Education program is also designed to aid in obtaining employment in daycare and early childhood education centers.
