I am excited that you are interested in Lander University’s College of Behavioral & Social Sciences.  The quality of our programs is seen in successes of our alumni who excel in careers with businesses, government agencies, law firms, non-profit organizations, and schools; serve their communities as law enforcement officers; or defend our nation in the U.S. Army.  Lander provides a close-knit community where faculty and staff cheer on students who are taught to think critically, be adaptable and professional, and understand career options.  I encourage you to learn more about Lander and how we support student success.
