Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences

Dr. Clark Hultquist, Interim Chair
University of Montevallo on Main


The Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences explores the human condition in all of its richness and complexity. While focusing on the development of the essential skills of critical analysis in the disciplines of anthropology, geography, history, political science, psychology, social work, and sociology, the department fosters a commitment and capacity for informed citizenship. As active citizens, students gain an understanding of diverse social perspectives and evaluate culturally-based values and beliefs. Finally, the department instills in its graduates the ability and desire to recognize and appreciate learning as a life-long process.

Graduate Offerings

No graduate degree is offered in the department; however, students pursuing a M.Ed. in Secondary Education (6-12) with certification in Social Science or History may take the following courses to fulfill teaching-field requirements.
