Humanities and Social Sciences

The Humanities and Social Sciences Department encompasses a range of courses that include the study of history, cultures, government, religion, philosophy, economics, and psychology. Through these courses, students have the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their world.

The courses in Humanities and Social Sciences take students from the general view of the world, presented in the World History sequence, to the more specific and specialized, as they move to United States History, then to government, religion, philosophy, and electives. In all their classes in this department, students build the skills they will need to succeed in college and are prepared to become informed and responsible citizens of the world. In addition, the Humanities and Social Sciences Department places an emphasis in all courses on the diversity of peoples, perspectives, and experiences in our world.
