The Social Sciences area option allows students to meet their individual education needs by developing a major based on courses from several departments within the Behavioral Sciences Division. The selection of courses should reflect a theme or program that is developed in consultation with the Academic Advisor.
Core Requirements 12 courses (36 credits)
To satisfy the requirements for a Social Sciences area major, students select one program in which they take five to six courses (15-18 credits) and two other programs in which they take three to four courses (9-12 credits) each for a minimum total of 36 credits. An example program of studies for a student who chose History as the major department and Political Science and Economics as the minor programs is shown below.
