Welcome to the Social Science Department!
The Social Science program is designed to assist students in becoming informed citizens, fully aware of the need for ensuring the dignity and worth of the individual, personally involved in improving the society they have inherited, and capable of recognizing the interdependence of all peoples. The goals of the program are developed through a variety of full-year and semester courses. The content of these courses draws upon the various social science disciplines including civics, geography, history, sociology, and psychology. These courses develop skills necessary in gathering, analyzing and evaluating information and taking informed action.
