Exploring the World Around You

Anthropology, History, Political Science, and Sociology are among a collection of associated disciplines devoted to the study of society and the manner in which people influence, and are influenced by, the world around them. These disciplines inform us about the world beyond our immediate experience and help explain human behavior and institutional structures, through space and time.

Courses in Anthropology, History, Political Science, and Sociology may be taken to satisfy general education and transfer requirements as well satisfaction of the Department's four degree programs housed in the School of Social Science and Global Studies: African American Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Global Studies, and Urban Studies.

The world is a complex and diverse place in need of problem solvers. Expand your understanding of the world and acquire the skills needed to become a problem solver by taking a class in Anthropology, History, Political Science, and Sociology, or exploring one of our four degree programs.
