Program Objectives

The objective of the M.A. in Social Sciences is to provide students with a survey of the concepts and ideas social scientists study with emphasis placed upon the domestic and international impact of globalization. While the program provides course work in the breadth of the social sciences, its emphasis is on history, political science, economics, sociology, anthropology, and geography. This program is especially attractive to those pursuing a career in or seeking advancement in secondary school and community college teaching in the social sciences. Those interested in work in other types of educational and social science related fields may also benefit from this program.
