Welcome to the History/Lang/Social Sciences Department
The Department of History, Languages, and Social Sciences offers a wide variety of
courses and programs designed to introduce students to those things which make
humans unique Ė the humanities, history, languages, the mind, and the quest for
wisdom. The courses offered in the Department of History, Languages, and Social
Sciences afford students opportunities to learn how their everyday behaviors impact
and are impacted by the world around them. Opportunities abound to study the
emergence and progression of human civilization from ancient through modern times.
Students are exposed to a broad range of concepts about human capacities for
learning, growing, and changing.
Our history courses will give the student a choice of study that ranges from European
and American studies to a more specific African-American historical and cultural study.
The foreign languages offered through this department are unparalleled for a junior
college in their variety (French, German, Spanish, and Latin). From Socrates to Sartre,
from Buddhism to Judaism, our religion and philosophy courses will leave the student
with greater critical thinking skills and a greater appreciation for the major thought
processes of the world. Additionally, degree areas within the department include
Psychology and the Social Sciences (including Anthropology, Social Work, and
Sociology). Want to explore the human mind, group behavior, and cultural diversity? If
the investigation of human cultures and societies, past or present, appeals to you, then
the Department of History, Languages, and Social Sciences is the place for you!
