Dr. Brian Andrews, Department Head and Associate Professor
“Our students are interested in human behavior – how and why humans behave the way they do, how society functions and changes, and how humans interact with their social and physical environments. Our degrees in Psychology, Sociology, Community Counseling, and Environmental Studies develop skills in critical thinking and research, and give students the ability to transform their interests into careers that allow them to serve the people in their communities.”
