Social Science

What makes us human? Why do people act the way they do? How should we organize our society?

Doane’s Social Science Division explores the realm of human interaction with other humans. In this division’s programs, students learn to focus on human behavior, past and present. The division provides a firm foundation in the liberal arts, along with a combination of academic and real-world experiences employers and graduate schools want to see.

  • Gain foundational knowledge of the disciplines that determine society.
  • Work with your advisor to create an interdisciplinary academic program that fits your needs.
  • Numerous opportunities for internships and field work.
  • Lots of options to combine Social Science disciplines with other majors.

With a degree from one of Doane’s Social Science programs, you’ll be ready to make your mark in the world and influence the people around you.
