The Division of Social Sciences includes the following disciplines: Anthropology, Economics, History, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. Students wishing to combine study in several social science disciplines may consider a “Social Sciences” divisional Area of Concentration.
Course requirements for this concentration include: one introductory and two or more advanced courses and/or tutorials in at least three social science disciplines. This would mean a minimum of nine courses or tutorials in the social sciences.
A Social Sciences concentration also involves a senior thesis that uses social scientific research methods. Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the various methodologies employed by social scientists.
The program of study will be worked out by student and sponsor. The Area of Concentration form must be signed by at least two social science faculty who are in agreement on the student's plan of study. The thesis must be sponsored by a social science faculty member. The Baccalaureate Committee must also include two other members of the social science faculty.
