Social Science

Social Science

The Social Science courses afford students with the opportunity to examine a topic from the perspectives of several disiplines in the social sciences, including psychology, sociology, anthropology, history,and economics. As a result, students develop a much more comprehensive understanding of the complexity of an issue.  Students can also gain insight into how practitioners of the various disciplines make sense of human behavior and how their approaches differ.
