Division of Social & Behavioral Sciences

From psychology to outdoor leadership, our division is central to Young Harris College’s academic core. We bridge the sciences and liberal arts, discovering new knowledge and understandings of the complexities of human behavior, culture and social issues.

YHC wants you to be the best version of yourself. Complementing our academics, we educate the whole person to build on your morals, integrity and humanity. We make ethics and global understanding part of the discussion across all disciplines—it even drives some of our innovative programs. Here, the classroom and public service intersect so you can make a real difference in the world.

While our division is home to some of the largest lecture classes on campus, our largest classes only consist of around 30 students. That small class size is rare at other institutions, but a priority for YHC. This fosters such a sense of belonging, you can’t help but feel comfortable as you learn, grow and prosper. That comfort allows for more interaction with your professors and peers, which sparks debate and learning.  So you get more out of your education and feel more confident about your ideas after graduation—in whatever program or career you choose.
