Social Sciences

Guided Pathway Division

The Social Sciences Guided Pathway explores the interdisciplinary connections among fields of human growth, social behavior and historical analysis. Students will develop strong analytical thinking, research, communication, and relationship-building skills. These credentials lead to a number of different career paths in government, social work, education, business, or non-profit organizations.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
