The Center for the Study of Human Behavior (CSHB) is dedicated to the cultivation of ideas, the advancement of knowledge through empirical, theoretical and theological investigations, and the application of knowledge in local and global contexts to bring healing to hurting communities. We are multidisciplinary and our scholarship is diverse, yet we are united under the common goal of understanding human development and thriving using a variety of epistemological tools available to us as scientists, scholars and Christians. The CSHB serves faculty and students at California Baptist University by providing training, resources and partnerships so that our scholarly contributions may ameliorate human suffering and promote healing, health and flourishing with the ultimate goal of glorifying Jesus Christ.

If you are a student or a faculty member hoping to get involved or hone your research skills, you have come to the right place.
