School of Human Sciences
The School of Human Sciences contains departments that embrace the philosophy that complex human behavior can be understood through the application of modern scientific methods. Whether one focuses on the psychology of human existence or the physical processes that support life and health, students and faculty in the School of Human Sciences are acutely aware that understanding is greatest when one understands the interface of both psychological and physical sciences.
The component core departments of Kinesiology and Health Science, and Psychology are grounded in that fundamental perspective. Majors from these departments should graduate with a fuller appreciation of the current scientific foundation, determinants and strategies of health and human behavior, and a clear understanding of how knowledge is gained and applied in our understanding of human existence.
