The School of Human Behavior at LC puts Christ at the center of learning. Encompassing several specialty areas, the division helps students grow in their faith while at the same time preparing them for a career of serving others.

Within the School of Human Behavior, students may pursue degrees in criminal justice, psychology, social work and sociology.

The school is equipped with state of the art technology in labs and classrooms to keep students engaged with research and presentations.

To complement a qualified and experienced faculty, Louisiana College is located in an area of Louisiana where many social service and criminal justice agencies are based, thus providing excellent internship opportunities for Human Behavior students.

Louisiana College takes a unique approach to a liberal arts education, undergirding it with a Christian perspective to put Christ at the center of learning. The School of Human Behavior includes several specialty areas in which students can learn and grow as they prepare for a career of serving others.

Upcoming Opportunities for Human Behavior Students

September 29

VA Stand Down for Homeless Veterans is Friday, September 29th 8 a.m. until noon at the V.A. Medical Center in Pineville, LA. All volunteers should attend the orientation on Sept. 18th.


Graduates of the Human Behavior School have distinguished themselves as college professors and authors of college texts, as heads of various social service and criminal justice agencies, and as leaders in various areas of Christian social ministries, among other things.

Helping students understand how the values of social work and the values of the Christian faith closely align is a key component in their education and application of skills in the marketplace. The Master of Social Work degree at Louisiana College is far more about people than a process or a product. The very nature of the social work profession is service oriented, which reflects LC’s practice of integrating faith and learning.

Students have the option of entering the program as part time, full time (2 years), or full time advanced standing (1 year).
