In American Social Sciences, students will explore the significance of American history from a social science perspective, acquire critical thinking skills, and prepare to conquer more advanced humanities courses. They will leave with a developed nuanced understanding of the world, and tools to make reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world.
