Why Choose Social Science?


Do you enjoy a variety of fields of study? Are you interested in receiving a classic liberal arts degree, or do you not want to focus on only one area during your time in college? Or would you simply like to become a well-rounded person? Then the Social Science major is for you. In our Social Science program, you are offered the chance to explore the human condition and how we relate to one another and our world in a variety of contexts. You will spend time studying Communication, Criminal Justice, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. And if one of them becomes a favorite, then that area can become the speciality of your Social Science major.
