The Social Sciences B.S. degree is an interdisciplinary program. Students are provided with interdisciplinary breadth and depth in the Social Sciences as they fulfill the requirements of three separate social science minors of their choice, a statistics course, and a methodology course.
The Social Science major offers students more flexibility in building their own college experience than nearly any other program on campus. No other program, for example, would allow a student to study North American Indians with a focus on their unique organizational communication structure along with a sociological understanding of the discrimination this group has endured and the effects that it has had on their current culture.
Students who choose this major need to be self-driven and prepared to explore three social sciences disciplines. These areas open to exploration are Anthropology, Communication, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Women’s and Gender Studies.
