Social Sciences at WSU Tri-Cities
This division of the General Studies Program is for students whose primary interest in social sciences. Social Science majors take part in interdisciplinary programs and courses, emphasizing the social, political, economic and religious institutions of human society.
Social sciences courses introduce students to data used by various disciplines to test, explain, or create the concepts, theories, principles and laws underlying those institutions. These courses may focus on how social sciences use these constructs to evaluate issues and how such knowledge enhances the understanding of human behavior with society’s institutions.
Students in this program work together with an advisor to devise a coherent program of study that fulfills an academic or career goal. See our Program Learning Goals and Outcomes to learn more.
