Category E - Social and Behavioral Sciences
(Two Courses - 6 credit hours

An awareness and recognition of the disciplines that examine and analyze group and individual behavior is of increasing importance for all who seek to understand and to predict the patterns and processes of human activity. These disciplines examine the causes of human action and the diversity of its organization and structure. Their study will help the student to see the connection between his or her own perspective and that of society and to appreciate the effect social forces have on the individual. The courses in this category will also consider the theoretical frameworks of each discipline and the methods and results of current research.

One course must be taken from those listed in two of the following disciplines.

ANT111 Cultural Anthropology
GEO140 Cultural Geography
PSY101 General Psychology
SOC101 Introduction to Sociology: Society & Diversity
