The Social Science curriculum blends course sequences in History, Government, Psychology, and Sociology into a cohesive study of the human experience, past and present. Students majoring in Social Science particularly explore the human condition. They contemplate the inherent dignity of all people, the value of diverse cultures and societies, the importance of community, and the need to advance justice in the world.
Many students in the Social Science program elect to complete preparation in Secondary Education, and embark on careers teaching at the middle school and high school levels. Others go on to complete graduate studies in history and law. The wide-ranging, human centered studies completed by Social Science graduates, in the spirit of the University of Providence’ mission, constitute an excellent enhancement for “living and for making a living.”
