The department offers Bachelors of Arts degrees in the areas of History, Political Science, and Sociology, and a Bachelors of Criminal Justice. These degrees require 120 hours of credit.
Consistent with the overall philosophy of the Liberal Arts and Sciences, while these degrees convey specific information about their respective areas of study, their main emphasis is on the development of critical thinking abilities and communication skills of the products of this inquiry. As such, while these degrees contain knowledge specific to a program of study, they prepare students for a broad range of pursuits outside of their disciplines as well.
Honor Societies and Clubs
Through honor societies and campus clubs, students have the opportunity to interact with other students with similar interests, both academic and non-academic. Clubs and organizations further enhance in-class learning in an informal setting. The Department of History and Social Sciences is very proud to sponsor student organizations and honor societies.
