Political Science, Economics, & Sociology
Department Chair: Dr. Bob Slagter
Each of the disciplines in the Department of Political Science, Economics, and Sociology employs scientific methods to explain and predict human behavior. Coursework in these disciplines encourages critical and objective thinking, the ability to analyze quantitatively and qualitatively, to communicate clearly, and to identify the ethical dimensions of political, economic and social phenomena. Students majoring in any of the three disciplines can prepare themselves for graduate and professional school or any of a variety of occupations. The department supports interdisciplinary majors and minors that can also be suitable preparation for either employment or further study.
