Social Sciences

Become a citizen of the world
Do you wonder how people learn and communicate? How we live and work together, in families and in societies? How we ask and answer important questions—about freedom, identity, death, God? The social sciences deal with how individuals and groups function in relationship to each other and to society. From ethics to economics and politics to psychology, the study of social sciences expands your thinking. You’ll gain a broader perspective and analytical skills that you’ll use throughout your education, your career, and your life.

Study the psychology of color and its influence on behavior or explore the socio-cultural meanings of ethnic fashion. Discover how cultural differences can affect a marketing plan. Gain a foundation in economics, and better understand the cost of doing business.

Social Sciences courses are designed to provide students with a deeper understanding of social developments, human behavior, world demographics, and the global economy. Courses are offered in five disciplines:

  • Economics
  • Philosophy
  • Psychology
  • Political Science and World Affairs
  • Sociology
