General Program Information

Social science programs are designed to provide students with a study of human society which is interdisciplinary in nature. Major areas of study are carefully constructed from the disciplines of anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, psychology and sociology. Professional methodology courses in the teaching of the social sciences are offered for those students preparing to teach.

Social science credits obtained in international programs may be used in major  programs either as elective credits or as substitutions for required courses. In either case, however, consent for such application must be obtained in writing from both the academic department concerned and the social science program coordinator or designee prior to the experience being obtained.

The program coordinator will assist students with individual problems. Students are encouraged to seek advice from the coordinator when designing programs of study. Any deviation from program requirements as listed in the catalog requires approval of the program coordinator and the dean of the college of arts and humanities.

Internship and contracted field experiences are available through various social science departments. For further information, see the appropriate social science chair.
