Career Opportunities

An online social and behavioral science degree may once have been reserved for counselors and scientists. Today, however, organizations are leveraging that knowledge for their bottom line. While there is still a need for social workers and clinical researchers, a multitude of opportunities for analysts are opening up because corporations want to understand how teams can work better, how managers can be more productive, and how society values what they offer. The better companies know their customers, the better they will be at offering what they want.
