Building People and Communities

The College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences joins together a unique combination of schools and departments: Communication; Nursing; Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management; Political Science; Psychology; Public Health Sciences; and Sociology, Anthropology and Criminal Justice

While each area is distinctive, we work together as a 21st-century land-grant college  addressing health and wellness challenges, tackling human impacts on the environment, and better understanding human, political and social behavior and the impact of an ever-connected world. These efforts in teaching, research and service further our mission of "building people and communities" in South Carolina and beyond.

Leslie Hossfeld, Dean, College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences

“The influential work that our researchers do across the country and the globe is vitally important. We also focus on what is going on in our own backyard. There are underserved communities across the state and we use our research, learning and service opportunities to address critical needs throughout South Carolina, fulfill Clemson's land-grant mission, and position ourselves as a 21st-century land-grant college.”
