School of Social and Behavioral Studies

The School of Social and Behavioral Studies is one of four academic units in the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences. The school also houses 13 labs that range from law and cognition to sport, media and culture, biosocial psychology and social technology. 

Through research and teaching that explore how the human mind works, students and faculty seek to understand how we communicate with one another, how and why we organize into cultural and political groups as it relates to vital causes and issues, and ultimately how we make sense of our world and the many places we occupy within it.
