SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Ozarks Technical Community College and Drury University are partnering to develop an Associate of Arts in Behavioral Sciences degree program at OTC.

The partnership offers new classes at OTC to allow seamless transfers to Drury’s Behavioral Sciences program.

The A.A. in Behavior Sciences at OTC includes coursework in psychology, criminology and sociology. It was designed to meet Drury's requirements for students majoring in behavioral science disciplines.

Although the program incorporated courses OTC currently offered, it also required OTC to develop new courses to meet Drury's curricular expectations.

New courses offered by OTC for the A.A. in Behavioral Sciences include Psychology 210 - Research Methods, Psychology 220 - Statistics for Behavioral Sciences, and Sociology 215 - Deconstructing Social Problems.

The program launches in the fall of 2014
