About our Offerings
Are you looking for a broad-based education where you won’t just learn the skills you’ll need to do a certain job, but instead will learn how to think critically, communicate effectively, engage in your community and pull together knowledge from many disciplines – skills you’ll need to be successful in almost any career? Then a social science major, which emphasizes multidisciplinary study, is the right path for you. You’ll learn about diverse cultures, societal needs, our global world, and ultimately, receive the strong liberal arts background that many corporations desire in college graduates.
UNC’s Social Science program offers an interdisciplinary liberal arts emphasis, a community engagement emphasis and a Social Studies and Secondary Grades Teaching emphasis.
