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. Students are responsible for maintaining their computer with the required software appropriate for the courses they are enrolled in as they progress through the curriculum. Use of the computer varies by course.
