Social Science

The Social Science Department has the flexibility to accommodate students with varied career interests, preparing you for non-profit or public service positions, and graduate school as well.

All students within the Social Science Department complete an internship as part of their academic experience with top organizations, such as local government branches and departments, schools, social service agencies and more. Many of our students find full-time careers with these organizations after graduation.

Our social science majors are also encouraged to travel out-of-state and abroad as part of their experience. Past travel experiences have included study in Ireland, Greece, Rome, England, India, Japan and Ghana as well as in Maine, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and Washington, D.C.

As part of the curriculum, you’ll have opportunities to pursue independent research. Exploring your field of study through research allows you to gain hands-on experience, work with our outstanding faculty, prepare for graduate school or get a head start on your career.
