School of Social Sciences

Social Sciences

This multidisciplinary degree asks students to build projects and research using a variety of fields, but offers a level of specificity by focusing on the Social Sciences, fields known for studying human society and relationships: Criminal Justice, Economics, History, International Studies, Journalism and Media, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. The varied discipline curriculum prepares students with up-to-date social sciences content and methodological skills, including oral and written communication, interpersonal relationship building, team work, analytical and critical thinking, research, and problem solving skills.

The degree is specifically designed for students with over 75 accumulated credit hours, either transfer or prior IU coursework, but who have not followed a specific degree plan. The requirement flexibility provides students a means to graduate in a timely manner with the content and skills students need to achieve their career goals, but with equal academic rigor; as it incorporates the research methodology and capstone courses common to other, discipline-specific majors within the School of Social Sciences
