Human Sciences Degree Updates Its Name

In 1971, Hood College’s Graduate School began with one program, the Master of Arts in Human Sciences. The program has had a variety of concentrations throughout the past 40+ years, including education, environmental biology, public affairs, nursing, counseling, special education, and management. To reflect its housing within the Psychology & Counseling Department, as well as the interdisciplinary approach of the curriculum, the program has been renamed “Interdisciplinary Studies in Human Behavior.” Many of Hood’s current graduate programs started out as tracks of the degree, as it was initially developed for the human service occupations. You can read more about this development here.  Visit the Interdisciplinary Studies in Human Behavior program website for more information.
