Behavioral sciences is the 130th most popular degree in America, with 2,433 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #131 Rhetoric and Composition, and narrowly lost to #129 Dental Hygiene.

The degree is offered at a total of 72 colleges across the nation, and is the 220th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 5% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that 39% of colleges offering behavioral sciences are public making it a relatively inaccessible field.

The southwest produces the most behavioral sciences graduates, largely led by University of Houston-Clear Lake, while it’s the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Arizona ranks highest, with particular help from University of Phoenix-Arizona and Glendale Community College, which graduated 988 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study behavioral sciences). More students studied behavioral sciences as a percentage of total students at Life Pacific University than any other college.
