Social Studies

The Social Studies Department prepares students for active citizenship in a diverse, multicultural, globally interconnected, and democratic society. Through history, geography, and the political and social sciences, our course offerings provide pathways for students to explore the human experience, past and present, through global, national, local, and interpersonal lenses. Our courses aim to develop students’ critical reading, thinking, and communication skills, equipping them to approach complex challenges and opportunities through reasoned and informed decision-making.
