Social Studies Department

Department Coordinator: Brian Hodges

Philosophy and Goals

The primary objective of the Social Studies Department is to create discerning and engaged members of a global society. The social studies program must provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to process information, and the capacity to understand and appreciate people from backgrounds and cultures different from their own. Further, the program is intended to develop an informed, discriminating citizenship essential to effective participation in the democratic processes of governance and the fulfillment of the nation's democratic ideals.

While history forms the foundation for social studies, it is understood that concepts from other social sciences, including geography, political science, economics, psychology, law, and many others must be integrated through the department's courses to provide students with a firm understanding of their principles and methodologies. To assist students in understanding the interrelationships among branches of knowledge, the interdisciplinary inclusion of other subject matter with social studies is also encouraged in such areas as Humanities, and American Studies.
