Mercy College is a private liberal arts college, dedicated to providing students the opportunity to transform their lives through diversity and higher education. Hudson Link and Mercy have partnered to sponsor a challenging college program at Sing Sing Correctional Facility.
This socially-engaging college program provides the opportunity for students to obtain their Associate and Bachelor’s degrees in Behavioral Science. Through intensive college classes in psychology and sociology, engaging classroom discussions and complex research projects, students examine why individuals react to certain aspects of society and the world at large in a particular way taking into consideration motivation, emotion, perception, personality and individual preferences.
This challenging curriculum opens the door to critical thinking and a deeper understanding of oneself and the world and prepares our students to live and act ethically and responsibly in a changing world. In addition, a Behavioral Science degree prepares our students for rewarding careers in education, health services management and counseling.
