Start your future in public service: Take social sciences classes

Be informed and get engaged.

Social science classes are the gateway to careers in public service in law, politics, government, business, social work, and counseling as well as to jobs at local nonprofit organizations and international non-governmental organizations. Study political science, anthropology, philosophy, economics, geography, history, psychology, and sociology.

Today's students are actively looking for ways to get involved, volunteer, and make a difference in their community and the world.
