Mission Statement

The mission of the social science department is to provide quality learning experiences that lead to understanding how each of us shapes, and is shaped by, our culture and society.

This is accomplished primarily through courses of study dedicated to teaching:

  • The influence of history, geography, political science, psychology and sociology on individuals and society
  • The ability to distinguish opinion from facts
  • The ability to recognize social biases
  • The definition and necessity of social responsibility
  • The value of diversity
  • The development of social awareness
