Social Sciences

Social Studies

Talk about ties that bind! Social Studies brings almost every area of study in the Social Sciences together. Through the lens of Social Studies, you will analyze and examine rights, responsibilities and contributions citizens make to the structure and framework of their environment. This area of study pulls in academic analysis from psychology, economics, geography and anthropology. Without moving to deep into one category, Social Studies takes a hard look at top level aspects of each subject and how it impacts social events and processes.
