Department Head: Dr. Douglas Slawson
Sophisticated technologies and global economic activity draw societies together and challenge us to understand cultures that may differ dramatically from our own. Training in the social sciences will help to broaden and deepen your understanding of global cultures and workplaces.
The Department of Social Sciences helps students learn to think abstractly, formulate problems, ask appropriate questions, search for objective answers, analyze situations and data, and clearly organize material.
The department offers bachelor’s degrees in general studies, global studies, history, political science, sociology and interdisciplinary studies.
