Sapir's new Multidisciplinary Studies and Communications Departments joint BA degree, offers a unique Behavioral Science Studies platform. Our program combines expanded psychological studies that explore individual personality and behaviors together with communication studies that investigate sociological processes, focusing on human interaction with his/her environment. The joint major concentrates on the connections between the insights from the fields of psychology, social networks and new media technology.

Students will explore issues such as… What motivates people to consume a particular model of media …What catches their eye... What scares them?  They will delve into the connections between an individual's psychological understanding together with the behavioral expressions of society and media.

Graduates of the joint program will be qualified to pursue a MA degree in Psychology, Sociology and/or Communications. This new and unique program offers graduates broader job opportunities than a single-discipline degree.
