These disciplines seek to understand the structure, culture and functioning of modern society, as well as changes that have occurred through social, cultural, historical, economic and political processes.
Courses that can be used towards the social science major are offered by the departments of economics (College of Arts and Sciences), environmental science and geography, history, political science, psychology and sociology and anthropology. With prior approval, select offerings in other departments and programs may also be included.
Rather than majoring in one specific social science discipline, this major exposes students to a wider range of social science fields and allows them to concentrate in two of them. The major is comprised of seven units in one discipline (the primary area of concentration, or primary discipline) and four units in a second discipline (the secondary area of concentration, or secondary discipline).
The Social Science program from Stetson University complete a senior research project in their primary discipline. Additionally, students must complete two general education social science courses and/or elective social science courses in two different social science disciplines, both of which must be outside the primary and secondary areas of concentration.
