​​​​​​​​​​​About the Social Sciences and Education Pathway


If you are interested in why people do what they do or elementary/early education and child development, you can choose this pathway; it offers methods of study to understand human origins, motivations, and to describe human behavior. This pathway offers degrees and certificates in the science of understanding people -- anthropology, psychology, political and social sciences, criminal justice, chemical dependency -- but also degrees and certificates leading to work in elementary and pre-school education. An expert from this pathway can help you to choose which degree or certificate will best lead to your ultimate goal.

As with all pathways, you may choose to move to a different pathway at any time. If you so choose, an advisor can help you.
