  • Social and Historical General Education: Studying Human Interaction

    Social and Historical Studies (S&H) courses help you study many forms of human behavior and interaction.  By learning the broader contexts that shape and drive our behaviors, you will come to understand why people—and the institutions they inhabit—behave as they do.

    What you will do in Social and Historical Gen Ed courses:

    --Understanding and evaluating theories about many forms of human interaction

    --Applying and assessing the methods used in the social sciences

    --Appreciating human diversity

    --Practicing analytical and persuasive communications skills particular to the social sciences

    --Absorbing in-depth and complex knowledge in a social science area of particular interest to you, including History, Economics, Political Science, Sociology, Criminal Justice and Geography

    The General Education Bulletin explains more about what Social and Historical courses can help you do.
