General Education: Social Sciences

Students will have a “basic understanding of … the social sciences and their significance in contemporary society” (BOG) and will have an “awareness of the social, economic, political and environmental interdependence of countries and regions of the world” (BOG). The social sciences focus on human behavior: how people interact with each other in the past and present; how people interact with the environment; and how people organize, govern and trade among themselves.

Objectives:

  • To identify major concepts in the social sciences, which provide insight into the breadth of these disciplines and their relationship to other disciplines;
  • To explain the importance of cultural heritage in terms of where people came from, where people are, and where they may be going;
  • To describe, analyze or explain human behavior using the methodology of the social sciences; and
  • To identify, explain, apply and evaluate the moral and ethical codes of a social science discipline.
