Earn your social sciences degree from Marylhurst

 

Request information about this program.

Are you the kind of person who likes to look at life through many lenses? Instead of choosing one area of study, our Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences allows you to explore human experience through multiple disciplines.

You'll explore how deeply society and culture impact our lives. You'll uncover the principles of behavior that apply to all human communities, and also learn how to think more critically about how research and scholarly inquiry affect advances in the field.

Graduates of this program gain a deep understanding of how life experiences are shaped by individual relationships and social institutions, and can analyze an array of issues from a social science perspective and within social, cultural and historical contexts.

You can use elective courses to customize a degree plan to meet your personal and professional goals.
