About Us

The School of Behavioral Sciences at California Baptist University is one of the top Christian behavioral science programs in California and was established for the purpose of providing instruction, courses, degrees and certificate programs in the Behavioral Sciences. The pursuit of accurate historical and contemporary knowledge of the behavioral sciences is coupled with the skills necessary for the direct application of that knowledge in both secular and religious contexts. In addition, a prime goal of the School is the development of the appropriate relationship between the Behavioral Sciences and biblical truth. The School of Behavioral Sciences houses undergraduate programs, graduate programs in Counseling Psychology, Counseling Ministry and Forensic Psychology, and the Center for the Study of Human Behavior.

  • Significant Student/Professor Interaction
