Undergraduate Degrees in Social Sciences

Overview

If you are interested in how people relate to each other – whether it’s two thousand years ago in ancient Sumer, or right now in your own town – you might enjoy a degree in the social sciences. The term social covers degrees in fields like anthropology, archaeology, criminology, education, psychology, history, and international relations, to name a few.

Degree Description

Most institutions require you to choose a specific field of social sciences, each taking a different approach to the big questions of how human beings interact, make decisions, and respond to change. Undergraduate degrees in social sciences generally take four years to complete, or two years if you have already obtained an associate’s degree from a qualified institution. Courses can include topics in politics, psychology, counseling, criminal justice, environmental studies, economics, philosophy, and more. Students receive a broad base of knowledge that is especially helpful for careers in government, law, diplomacy, geography and education. Job options for those with an undergraduate degree in social sciences are endless because employers know that graduates have the fundamental writing and critical thinking skills to be successful in many areas.
