Behavioral and Social Sciences Department Program List
Since beginning my undergraduate degree at Evangel, I have been wildly impressed by the professionalism, real-world application, and kindness displayed by the professors in the Behavioral and Social Sciences Department. Learning to balance knowledge of your profession and integration of faith in the workplace is essential. Our professors demonstrate how to achieve this balance on a daily basis.
