Social Studies

Combine Four Disciplines To Cast A Wide Net of Expertise

Overview

More than a sampling, Social Studies lets you spread your education across a number of fields to help you better understand the many layers that make up our society.

Social Studies is an integrated major that permits students to enter into association with four disciplines: economics, history, political science, and sociology. Social Studies majors enter law, government service, teaching, banking, and other professions.

Successful completion of a senior thesis is a requirement for graduation.
