The Division of Social Sciences consists of the departments of history, political science and law, psychology, and sociology. Students will come to know the issues relevant today as they are investigated in all of the social sciences. Bachelor degrees are granted in history, political science and law, and psychology.
The first year of the social sciences program offers an introduction to the traditional social sciences. This provides a broad perspective on human behavior for the student and also allows the student to make a reasoned choice of the area within the social sciences for a specialization. Students in three of the degree-granting departments complete the same core curriculum requirements.
Intensive work in the department of the student's choice is reserved for the last two years in college. The curriculum is broad enough to prepare students for graduate school and also to interest those who wish to complete their education with the bachelor's degree.
