Social and Behavior Sciences - AA
These courses emphasize an appreciation and understanding of how members of diverse societies operate or have operated as individuals and social groups. Courses in the social and behavioral sciences will help students to develop an awareness of methods of inquiry and stimulate critical thinking about the ways in which people act and interact within social and cultural contexts. Students will study the perspectives, concepts, principles, theories, and methodologies of disciplines within social and behavioral sciences. Students transferring to a four-year university will have a basic foundation for further studies in areas such as American studies, anthropology, criminal justice, child development, economics, geography, history, political science, psychology, or sociology. This emphasis may be useful for students interested in possible career paths in education, history, social work, public administration, public service agencies, library science, economics, or social policy.
