Class Presentation

Social Sciences – General Views

  • A good grasp of a range of social science perspectives is key for developing a scientific and humanistic interpretation of the social world; thus, by engaging in discussions and critical thinking, social science students have a distinct advantage in viewing the world in an interpretive way.
  • Students are given opportunities to apply concepts and theories learned in solving practical societal problems.
  • Social science students use facts and ideas learned to think differently about their own lives, social behaviors, and the society in which they live; and, to begin to critically interpret and explain some of      the differences that they observe around them.
  • Social science majors develop critical thinking skills that can positively impact graduate and professional programs in any of the above fields of studies!
