Program of Study - Social Science
The study of Social Science enables students to develop their critical understandings and appreciations of human nature, interaction, and culture through the examination of social scientific theories, the use of social scientific methods, and the analysis of social scientific data. This program is designed to equip students with a broad understanding of human life and relationships, an awareness of methods, topics, and trends in the social sciences, and an advanced ability to think analytically, critically, and creatively.
Graduates with a B.A. in Social Science are better equipped to: understand people, culture and society, both in the terms of the human condition in which they live and the human experience of life; Characterize the various methods and theoretical perspectives of the social sciences in contrast to the humanities; demonstrate knowledge of differing approaches to the integration of Christian perspectives and the social sciences, and skill in its practice; articulate how individuals, groups and societies emerge, function and change in everyday life; summarize and evaluate important human ideas and issues from an informed Christian worldview; interpret their own human experience, and thereby enhance self-understanding, for the purpose of attaining more enlightened and satisfying human experience; and display an appreciation of, and commitment to, the common good and well-being of human life.
All students in degree programs are required to take a minimum of courses in a variety of general arts and sciences so as to enable them to acquire an adequate foundation and context for their chosen area of studies, and to develop a critical appreciation of scholarship in general.
Biblical and Theological Studies establish anchor points for effective Christian thinking, living, and serving in the church and in society. The Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences deepen the understanding and heighten the appreciation of human nature, thoughts, cultures, and societies. Music and Theatre foster the musical and dramatic expression of the human spirit, condition, and experience.
