The Social Sciences area option allows students to meet their individual education needs by developing a major based on courses from several programs within the Social Science programs of the Behavioral Sciences Division which include History, Political Science, Economics, Sociology, Criminal Justice, Public Policy, and Psychology.
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.
