Behavioral Sciences

Welcome to the Indiana Wesleyan University Division of Behavioral Sciences. Our division is the home for degrees in Addictions Counseling, Criminal Justice, Pre-Art Therapy, Psychology and Social Work. A minor or two-year associate degree is also available in Addictions Studies, Psychology and Sociology.

In every major, hands-on experience is a critical component. Our faculty members believe that one of the best ways to learn about a profession is to do it. They oversee and participate in multiple experiences, ranging from weekend trips to research projects to practicums to service-learning projects. They make sure there is always a close connection between what is happening in the classroom and what their students will be expected to do in their respective fields.

Meeting the professors and seeing their heart about academics and fitting that in with the Christian faith, I realized that this would be the perfect place for me.
