Social Scientific Analysis

The rationale for this requirement is based on two beliefs. The first is that an essential component of a liberal arts education helps students understand and develop the ability to analyze the social world in which they live. The second is that the social sciences provide a distinctive and valuable perspective for understanding human behavior, social interaction, and related issues of social concern. This requirement is intended to ensure that all students develop basic abilities to perform social scientific analysis of patterns of social interaction.
