The Social Sciences Division encompasses the history, theory, and investigation of societies, systems, regions, groups, and individuals. These are central concerns of the departments of African American Studies, Anthropology, Economics, Geography and the Environment, History, Political Science, Policy Studies, Psychology, Sociology, International Relations and Women’s and Gender Studies. Hence most courses satisfying the Social Sciences Division requirements come from these departments.
