Social Science

T. Rand, Adviser

The Social Science related fields concentration offers the student a variety of courses in Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science and Sociology. The program is designed to permit the student to achieve a moderate concentration in one field and complementary work in all others. Students wishing to complete a “teaching major” in Social Science should instead follow the BSEd program in Social Studies (see Department of Teaching and Learning listing).
