Social Sciences Department

Welcome to the Social Sciences Department

The Social Sciences Department offers numerous courses that will let you explore human behavior and society including Anthropology, Psychology, and Sociology. Our experienced and dedicated faculty are available to assist you as you work toward your two-year degree or prepare to transfer to a four-year institution. We offer a variety of general education courses in the traditional (face-to-face), hybrid, and on-line formats during the day and evening. As an institution of higher learning, we strive to develop students' critical thinking skills, foster self-discovery, and encourage community involvement.

Something for everyone!
