• The social studies program connects students to their world. Courses develop the knowledge, critical thinking, and interpersonal skills necessary to be a responsible and responsive member of society (local, national, and global). Through study, simulation and application, students learn about conflict, social decision making, and social problem solving. Within their four-year program, all students take courses in global geography, American history, economics, and government.  Students can expect to learn skills which apply to career opportunities in the fields of Human Resources and Business & Management, such as law, economics, political science, business, social services, and education.
