Social Science



Why do people in society interact and behave the way they do? If you’ve ever puzzled over that question, a degree in social science is for you. Uncover the hows and whys of human society, and develop a stronger understanding of what makes people tick. Choose from general sociology, geography, or a leadership concentration, and walk away ready to apply what you’ve learned and excel in your career, or continue with graduate studies.
