The Social Sciences programs help you develop a broad understanding of human behavior and events, perspective which can be used to develop new ideas and approaches to nearly every aspect of society.
A major in Social Sciences can be applied to many professions, including careers in government, law, administration, education, and social work.
Social Sciences studies emphasize critical skills in reading, writing, researching, and problem solving skills expected for postgraduate education pursuits.
