Human Behaviour

New concentration pending approval by the Board of Governors

The Human Behaviour concentration focuses on areas of Social Science that study social relationships, human behaviour, and the mind. Why do people act the way they do? How are social relationships constructed and maintained? How do we learn? What social and environmental factors influence human health and behaviour? These are some of the questions you will examine from a multidisicplinary perspective.

WHO SHOULD TAKE IT?

If you are naturally inquisitive about people and want to better understand human behaviour, relationships and social structures, then Human Behaviour at Marianopolis is for you.

WHERE DOES IT LEAD?

The Human Behaviour concentration is a great stepping stone for a wide variety of university programs, including studies in Psychology, Social Work, Sociology, Criminology, Mediation and Conflict Resolution, Human Resources and Education.
