You may earn credits toward your Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences degree by concentrating in two or three areas among the following disciplines:

  • Anthropology
  • Criminal Justice
  • History
  • Human Development
  • Personnel Psychology/Human Resources
  • Political Science
  • Psychology
  • Sociology
  • Women's Studies

Or you can design a multidisciplinary degree that will allow you to focus more closely on your personal values, interests and goals. For example, many students add coursework in digital technology and culture, personnel psychology and human resource management, or public affairs and policy. You must complement the courses in your major concentration with courses from at least one other area in the social sciences, humanities or business.

Alumni have succeeded in many fields, such as business, law, international services, politics and government, social work, sports management, teaching and more.
