Broad Field Social Studies (BFSS) at Bethany Lutheran College combines the depth of the history major with the breadth of insights gleaned from the social sciences. In this way, students will not only study history, but will also examine aspects of anthropology, sociology, psychology, and geography.


The resulting integration ensures a broad knowledge base and strong research skills. Graduates in the Broad Field Social Studies from the Bethany Lutheran College will be well prepared for graduate school and work in research, government, politics, and education. Most importantly, our professors are committed to mentoring their students in college academics and the Christian faith.
