Human Behavior (GB)

Requirement: One 3-credit hour course.

GenEd Human Behavior courses address the relationships between individuals and communities. Courses may focus on the relationship between individuals and communities in general or may engage those relationships from specific perspectives (such as art, music, education, religion, economics, politics or education), or look at them within specific themes (such as food & eating, crime, crisis, sexuality, adolescence).

Human Behavior courses are intended to teach students how to:

  • Identify and explain social phenomena;
  • Identify and explain different analytical models; and
  • Compare and contrast similar social phenomena across individuals or communities.
