The Social Science baccalaureate is a 120 credit (4-year) degree that is an integration of anthropology, economics, geography, history, government, , and political science. This diversified and flexible major is designed for those interested in professional careers in civil service on the federal and state level, public service, secondary social studies education, pre-library services or pre-law. Students will be guided to develop critical reasoning skills, competence in quantitative and qualitative research, skills in oral and written communication, and social science applications.
No minor is required. For career planning, we do recommend students take a minor such as Criminal Justice or Education, or specialty courses such as law courses, history courses, applied language courses, or the MHRT-C State of Maine (social work) sequence.
