College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (CSBS) promotes an understanding of how individuals, societies and cultures contribute to human development. Our faculty and students focus on studying real world problems, from integrating immigrants in Iowa and the causes of war in Africa, to effective crime prevention strategies and how natural disasters impact communities. We have programs that address the structure and needs of families, the role of gender and race in societies, globalization, and the history, geography and politics of every region in the world.
The College of Social and Behavioral Science first formed in 1968 as the College of Business and Behavioral Sciences. It included four departments: the Business and Business Education Department, the Home Economics Department, the Psychology Department, and the Social Science Department. In 1981, with the Business Department becoming its own college, the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences as its known today was established.
