About the Department
Our faculty teach and research within a wide variety of fields – psychology, sociology and anthropology, criminology and education – focusing on the development, roles and reciprocal relationship of the individual and society. Our focus is on a socio-psychological approach, seeing the individual and the community within a multicultural context.
We are committed to applying our knowledge and expertise to both social initiatives and support treatment, exemplified by corresponding tracks for each within our curriculum.
Students who complete the program earn a B.A. in Behavioral Sciences.
YVC and its Department of Behavioral Sciences invest significant energy and resources in establishing and maintaining ongoing academic dialogues with colleagues outside of Israel. These academic interactions keep professors and students abreast of new developments, expand their horizons of inquiry, and encourage collaborative research and applied projects.
In addition to engaging in dozens of ongoing collaborations in the United States and Europe, YVC is a partner in the IRIS project, a European Union initiative aimed at fostering stronger ties between Israeli academic colleges and European academic institutions.
