The core of our major in enhanced by the inclusion of courses in political science, sociology and psychology.

Our small college environment allows out faculty members to spend the time that is needed to establish and maintain vital and effective advising relationships with our students. This allows our students to supplement their major with carefully chosen relevant courses, such as accounting, organizational management, biology, American Sign Language, and other social sciences.

Many of our students also complete a minor in another discipline such as psychology, sociology, or Spanish. Some students are able to complete a double major. "
