Department of Social Sciences

Each of the Social Sciences disciplines connects students to an important facet of the human experience.

The Anthropology, History, and Sociology Programs are housed in the Department of Social Sciences. In each of these programs, we emphasize critical thinking, community engagement, field research, a variety of methodological skills relevant to current societal issues, responsible citizenry, and the generation of transferable skills to prepare students for a successful future. As teachers, we are dedicated to excellence, providing students with opportunities for independent student research and for working closely with faculty. Students learn valuable skills to deal with a diverse world and effect change through internships, service learning, and experiential learning.
