A Message from the Dean of Social and Behavioral Sciences

It is a distinct privilege to welcome you to the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences! We are a unique school that brings the study of psychology and human behavior together with the training of behavioral health professionals across a number of disciplines. Our faculty and learners work collaboratively to foster mental health, resilience, and wellness for individuals, families, schools, organizations, and communities facing today’s complex social issues. Using Capella’s competency-based curriculum design, the faculty focus on assessing learners on the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in a competitive job market.

Our school consists of two departments. The Department of Counseling and Family Therapy includes accredited or externally aligned clinical graduate programs designed to prepare learners with the education and clinical training needed to serve diverse clients and communities in a variety of clinical settings. The Department of Psychology includes doctoral, master’s, bachelor’s, and certificate programs that provide education in the science and practice of psychology to prepare learners for employment in a wide variety of occupational settings.
