The Social Sciences Major is designed to provide students with an interdisciplinary understanding of human society. The social sciences are comprised of a set of disciplines whose goal is to promote awareness of human experience, societies, and cultures.
A Social Sciences degree lays the foundation necessary for students to understand and evaluate critical issues facing contemporary society and prepares them for critical membership in this society. The courses in the major give students the knowledge to approach these critical issues from a diversity of perspectives. Within the Social Sciences Major, students will choose to either concentrate on a single discipline within the area or to concentrate on two areas to provide a more interdisciplinary degree.
