Integrated Social Sciences: Sociology Concentration

Integrated Social Sciences (BA)

The Social Sciences Department is excited to announce the launch of its new Integrated Social Sciences degree.  This program consists of courses in Sociology, History, and Government & Politics.  All students will complete a common ISS core and courses from each discipline but will also choose one or more of these fields as their primary emphasis.  This interdisciplinary approach is designed to prepare students for both graduate study and their future employment plans.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that today’s college graduates will likely change not just jobs but careers several times.  The ISS degree prepares students for this future by emphasizing those skills – specifically, the ability to think critically and communicate effectively - that will be valuable regardless of career.


Sociology Concentration

The Sociology minor seeks to prepare students with the knowledge, tools, and skills to develop an appreciation of a poly-cultural and complex social, political, and economic environment and the ability to engage in critical social analysis.

The objectives of this minor are:

  • To expose students to theories, issues, and perspectives relevant to the study of sociological theory.
  • To provide the tools for independent critical analysis, integration, and creative expression.
  • To prepare graduates with the skills to engage in social research at a level that qualifies them for entry into graduate school and professional employment.
