Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Social Sciences
Those who study in one or more of the Social Science disciplines have a broad understanding of significant social issues and critical thinking skills as they enter graduate school or the workforce to become leaders in business, economics, international relations, public administration, law, education, government, and civil service. The Social Sciences major is ideal for students wishing to have a broad, interdisciplinary scope of study.
The Social Sciences major allows students to gain a broad knowledge of the social sciences, while tailoring the course selection to those that will benefit them most in their chosen career path. Areas of study include anthropology, economics, geography, government, history, sociology, psychology, criminal justice, and social work. The great thing about the Social Sciences major is that it allows so many choices in a variety of disciplines.
