Boston University - Boston, MA

  • BS

The Behavior and Health major is a bachelor of science degree program offered through the Department of Occupational Therapy at Sargent College. The program prepares students for entry-level positions working with people in hospitals and community-based health care facilities, and in education, and social and human service organizations. With appropriate selection of courses, students are well positioned to pursue graduate studies in related fields such as anthropology, sociology, or disability studies, as well as graduate professional preparation in behavioral medicine, social work, occupational therapy, special education, rehabilitation counseling, speech-language pathology, and law. Coursework includes the Sargent core curriculum courses and courses designed to provide a foundation in the basic biological and psychosocial sciences. Students define a specific focus for their studies by their senior year that includes courses that represent critical content in that area, a practicum/internship experience, and a senior seminar taken in conjunction with the practicum. This focus may include a related minor (e.g., deaf studies or women’s studies), be tied to a specific professional career goal, or may represent a core area of interest that the student proposes to study in more depth.
