Social Sciences

Though not offered as a structured academic discipline, Political Science courses can offer students background on the history of political thought, society and government, political and government processes, and the American political system. How do political behaviors compare in different countries? What about international relations? Students learn about methods of practical political problem solving in courses that compliment a Liberal Arts education.

Psychology consists of fundamental expressions of the human condition. It is a discipline that can lead you to the depths of your inner self and into unexplored regions of your thinking and ordinary awareness. What does it mean to be a human being with the capacity to think about, discover, and ponder the "truth"?  How do we make decisions? How does the brain process thoughts? Courses offered in the Liberal Arts program can provide students with a solid foundation prior to transfer to a four-year institution. This elective deals with aspects of behavior and mind in the normal human experience, along with studies of disorder in these and other topics.

Have you been curious about why social groups behave the way they do? Are you a good listener, or someone your peers turn to for support? If you're a social problem solver, motivator of your friends, or leader of your community, then a concentration in sociology (Liberal Arts) or social work (major) may be an ideal one for you.
