The Albertus Social Science Degree Mission Statement
The curriculum in the Social Science major is designed to provide strong academic training in any two social sciences along with an exposure to at least two other areas of social science research. The mission of this major is to provide a broad interdisciplinary exposure to studying the anthropological, economic, psychological, political, sociological and urban studies aspects of human society and behavior. The possibility exists for the applied social science student to design, in consultation with the department, an off-campus practicum/internship in a relevant social science subfield for which college credit is given. Alternately the student may choose to complete independent interdisciplinary research into a Social Science topic of their choice by working closely with an individual faculty member affiliated with the program. Students may also pursue minor courses of study in other social science disciplines.
