Computer Policy

In the behavioral sciences, the computer is an indispensible tool for collecting and working with data, accessing scientific reports, and for writing and critical thinking. As a result, the Department of Behavioral Sciences requires students to have a laptop computer in order to meet the requirements of the curriculum; this computer must be purchased by the student’s second year in the program or the semester of the first research class, whichever is earlier. Students are responsible for maintaining their computer with the required software appropriate for the courses that they are enrolled in as they progress through the curriculum. A list of required software and minimum specifications that a laptop must meet is available in the Department of Behavioral Sciences office; use of the computer varies by course.
