Social Sciences Collegiate Division

The social sciences examine human phenomena at a number of levels: from the thinking and feeling individual, to economic, political, and cultural systems, to large-scale societies.

The Division offers five yearlong general education sequences that introduce modes of discourse and analysis that deal with human phenomena, covering writings that exhibit central concepts, theories, and modes of inquiry that form the foundation for work in the social sciences. The Division also sponsors general education sequences on the major civilizations of the world. Its major programs include both traditional disciplines and interdisciplinary fields of study.
