The Humanities and Social Sciences Department offers a degree in Applied Psychology, minors in Medical Sociology and Psychology, and a diverse collection of courses in support of Oregon Tech’s general education mission. We are committed to our role in enabling students to develop intellectual curiosity, critical thinking skills, global knowledge, and ethical and cultural awareness.
The Humanities and Social Sciences department is entering the 2013-14 academic year with great energy as it pursues new opportunities on a number of fronts.
- The department has received approval to offer a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. The department will be soon admitting students to begin coursework in the fall of 2014.
- The department is expanding its offerings in Applied Behavior Analysis. In response to recent regulatory changes, the department is offering a nine-course sequence of graduate courses in ABA at the Wilsonville campus.
- The department is seeking approval for a new Bachelor’s degree in Population Health Management. This innovative degree is based in applied medical sociology and will prepare students for many career opportunities in health care.
- The department is developing a minor in Arts, Literature, and Philosophy (ALPs), which will support Oregon Tech students in pursuing humanities-based coursework beyond their basic general education requirements.
