The Social Science program is designed to give students the opportunity to explore a variety of disciplines. The flexibility of this program allows students to pursue their own unique intellectual interests and to cultivate analytical skills appropriate for a broad range of academic fields and professional occupations. Only certain courses in the SCC Social Science major may apply toward the Social Science major at other four-year institutions, including California State University, Sacramento. For students intending to transfer to a specific college or university, consult the appropriate sections of that institution's catalog for admissions, general education, and major requirements. Consultation with a Sacramento City College Counselor is advised.
Upon completion of this program, the student will be able to:
- research and analyze topics from interdisciplinary perspectives.
- apply effective critical thinking skills.
- evaluate data, draw reasonable conclusions, and apply these conclusions to personal, social and political problems.
- recognize the various ways in which distinctions based on race, gender, class, creed, ethnicity, and sexual orientation operate within human communities.
