Behavioral Science Courses ​ ​

​The department is comprised of academic disciplines with the overarching goal of understanding the social life and behaviors of groups and individuals. Our disciplines take two fundamental approaches to reach our academic goal:
    • Social Science: disciplines with special concern for the structural-level processes of a social system and the impact of such social systems on social processes and social organization
    • Behavioral Science: disciplines that explore the activities of and interactions among organisms in the natural world through the systematic analysis and investigation of human and animal behavior in controlled and naturalistic experimental observations

The Department of Behavioral Science at Riverside City College explores our current understanding of the individual and social behaviors. From the philosophical roots of science to the functioning of the human brain, from small-group dynamics to markets, cultures, institutions, and norms in global contexts, our faculty and students strive to understand the dimensions of complex individual and social systems.​
