Social Studies Courses

The Social Studies Department offers a program of study centered upon the importance of history. Students take a three year, required sequence of surveys in World Civilizations and United States History. Within these surveys, students are introduced to the rise, organization, and development of great civilizations, then led to study the great issues of the 21st century. Students search for meaning in the past using a wide variety of primary and secondary sources, print and electronic. Writing is used extensively across the department curriculum, providing opportunities to explain, evaluate, and criticize the ideas and actions of people across time and cultures. The department offers a series of electives in the social sciences and history in which juniors and seniors continue this kind of historical investigation at an academic level consistent with introductory college work.
