The Behavioral Sciences Department


In line with the mission of De La Salle University as a leading learner-centered and research university; and with the stature of the College of Liberal Arts as a center of excellence for teaching and research in the humanities and the social sciences, the Behavioral Sciences Department (BSD) promotes academic excellence, quality research and scholarship, individual integrity, collegiality and social responsibility. Overall, BSD’s work is geared towards a sustainable Earth and is carried out in the service of church and society, including the poor and the marginalized.

BSD aims to produce professionals who are able to critically comprehend, integrate, and apply the perspectives and skills of Sociology, Anthropology and Health Social Science in the development of human resources and in the management of change in organizations, communities and institutions.


The Department draws its expertise from 10 full-time and 8 part-time faculty members, all of whom have had a number of research projects and publications, and experience in development work.


This organization serves as the official organization of the Behavioral Sciences degree programs (AB-OSDM & AB-SPM). It is committed in implementing academic, socio-civic, and developmental activities that benefit the Behavioral Sciences community. It envisions a student organization that initiates, organizes, and leads projects that employ perspectives found in Behavioral Sciences courses such as social research, organization development, human resource management, and program development.
