Mission and Goals



The Interdepartmental Social Sciences Program is a cooperative effort of the departments of criminal justice, economics, political science, psychology, social work and sociology. A degree in social sciences equips students with knowledge of the special content and principal methods of the social sciences disciplines. Individual students, in cooperation with the program coordinator, design a curriculum that addresses their broad interest in the social sciences and prepares them to achieve their academic and career goals. The program provides for a lifetime concern and responsibility for problem solving and encourages the liberation of personal capacities and intellectual individuality.
