About the Program

The social science field is interdisciplinary and designed for students who wish to gain a broader understanding of the social sciences than is possible in a major offered by a single discipline. The aim of the social science major is to provide an opportunity for students who wish to build on the foundation of their general education and become familiar with more than one area of social science.
