Division of Behavioral Studies & Human Inquiry

Do you envision yourself studying behavior or working in the helping professions? Perhaps you have set your sights on law, politics or government, or see yourself leading a nonprofit or other organization. You will find the academic preparation and opportunities for experiential learning beyond the classroom within in our division. We have several majors and minors from which to choose to tailor your Columbia College degree.
