Social Studies

The mission of the Social Studies Department is to prepare students to be citizens of the world and to engage as active participants in a diverse, multicultural, globally interconnected, and democratic society. Our course offerings allow students to explore various facets of the human experience in order to better understand the roots of our current cultural, social, economic and political realities. Our courses aim to develop students’ critical reading, thinking, and communication skills, equipping them to approach complex challenges and opportunities through reasoned and informed decision-making.
