Explore Education, Social & Behavioral Sciences

If you have a passion for making a difference and for learning how human behaviors influence relationships & societies, consider selecting one of the two Exploratory Maps for the Education, Social & Behavioral Science (ESBS) Pathway.

NOTE: Check out the career information on each of these pages to help inform your decision!  

Our goal for you is that by the end of your exploration, you’ll be ready to choose the degree or certificate that is right for you. With the assistance of an advisor, you’ll make a plan to maximize the credits you’ve earned as you transition to your chosen pathway. 

What You’ll Learn

This program map is not a degree or certificate, it is a two-quarter sequence of classes that gives you time to explore the programs within this pathway. You’ll earn some transferable credits while investigating your interests and finding your passion.
At the end of two quarters, you’ll choose the degree or certificate that is right for you. With the assistance of your advisor, you’ll create a personal education plan to maximize the credits you’ve earned as you transition to your chosen pathway.
