DIVISION: Social Sciences
The Social Sciences Division strives to enable students to become active and informed citizens of our diverse and increasingly interdependent world. Our courses expand students’ understanding of human society, cultural practices, interpersonal relationships, social institutions, identity formation, and systems of thought. Studying the social sciences gives students the analytical skills to understand and critique social phenomena across diverse cultural and historical contexts. Students in the Social Sciences become agents of change in their local and global communities.
