Academic Program - Social Sciences and Legal Studies
The Social Science program offers courses that examine the ways in which individuals, groups, institutions, or segments of societies behave, function and influence one another. We introduce students to a variety of methods to collect, analyze, interpret, and apply qualitative and quantitative data as related to social phenomenon and individual behavior. A global perspective is emphasized to enable students to make responsible and informed decisions. Students who take social science courses are usually on a transfer pattern for a BA or BS degree.
