Department Goals and Objectives
The social sciences aim to explain individual and group behavior and include the disciplines of anthropology, history, political science, psychology, and sociology. Studying the social sciences develops the capacity for critical and analytical thinking about human behavior, community dynamics and social policies in terms of cultural and cross-cultural contexts. Those who study the social sciences often go on to careers in social work, social/human services, student development, the legal professions, human resources and the professional pastorate. At Judson University, students can major in Psychology, Sociology, Intercultural Studies,or History and/or participate in such Programs as Human Services, Pre-Law and Cross-Cultural Studies. The Division of Social Sciences strives to :
- Prepare students who are interested in careers in which they can apply an under- standing of human behavior.
- Prepare students for graduate study.
- Model and encourage academic excellence and integration of Christian faith and the social sciences.
- Model and encourage a global perspective for understanding human behavior.
