Social Sciences

The social scientist looks at the way individuals interact with each other and with the environment. The laboratory of the social scientist is the world itself. In our bachelor’s degree in social sciences program, you can attend class on the weekend as you work toward a career in social sciences research or related fields. 

Bureaucracy, technology, urbanization and industrialization have radically transformed the way people live and what they believe. The disciplines of communication, economics, history, management, political science, psychology and sociology provide the techniques and knowledge to investigate the workings and development of modern society. A grasp of the complexity of human behavior and of the dynamics of societal change enables students to manage the bewildering prospects of living peacefully and comfortably in the modern world.

The bachelor's degree in social sciences provides students with a solid conceptual foundation that permits them to excel in many areas. You can also choose a business communication or applied psychology track as preparation for their chosen careers. Career possibilities include public administration, social services, advertising and the news media, human resources, marketing and sales and other management areas. Students also may choose to continue on to graduate school in law, management or other programs.
