RICHARD L. CONOLLY COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS & SCIENCES

B.A. in Social Science


The B.A. in Social Science provides an opportunity for students to pursue a creative, interdisciplinary program, in which they study topics from several disciplinary perspectives while also allowing for concentration in their choice of a primary field of Economics, History, Sociology, or Anthropology.  This degree program includes a capstone course in the student’s final year.  Students are encouraged to customize their program by adding internships, honors and independent study courses as well as Study Abroad.  Outstanding students are also encouraged to develop their own research projects under the supervision of faculty mentors.
