Department of Social Sciences
The Department has both an academic and applied focus. Our academic focused programs encourage students to continue their studies in graduate school working towards the M.A., M.S.W., and Ph.D. degrees. Our applied focused programs gear students for employment after graduation as social workers, elementary teachers, pollsters, or market researchers.
The Department has a strong research orientation, with many faculties actively involved in funded research programs where students are hired as research assistants or given specific training in research.
