 MISSION STATEMENT

The Social Sciences Department empowers students to become life-long learners and critical thinkers by developing their analytical skills, teaching from a global perspective and promoting creative problem-solving skills. ​ Significant learning emerges from some combination of our cognitive, social/affective and linguistic skills. As a result, instructors should explore where a student is developmentally in regard to each domain (Teemant & Pinnegar, 2019). Through this, students in the Social & Behavioral sciences can gain a global perspective and problem solve.
