Social Science

The Social Science composite is an interdisciplinary major that emphasizes a broad exposure to several disciplines including history, sociology and economics. Students do intensive study in one discipline while attaining competence in several social science areas. Although primarily designed for students preparing to teach in the public schools, a non-teaching social science major provides a strong background for a variety of careers.
