Department of Social Sciences


Each program of study explores humans and the forces that shape us, asking critical questions from various perspectives. You will learn how to ask your own critical questions and to join in the dialogues and arguments about the human mind and behavior that have been ongoing for millennia. Your education in the Social Sciences will prepare you for the various roles you now are in as well as those you will adopt in the future.
