Admission and Tours

Requirements for undergraduate admissions into the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences are the same as those for admission to University of Arizona.  

We are “The People College” because the faculty and students in our programs focus on human beings and the human condition. We study values and belief systems, social interaction, and how social and cultural practices impact others and the environments in which they live. Our students are equipped with the depth and breadth of knowledge needed to understand the causes of some of the world’s most pressing sociocultural and political-economic issues, and they can analyze these challenges from multiple perspectives.

Students also gain valuable research experience through classroom education and the practical application of their research skills in real world research and applied contexts. In short, our faculty and students are seeking solutions to collective challenges through their work in public service and private industry.

The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences welcomes prospective students to visit campus and explore our programs in person!
