  • Goal 5: History and the Social and Behavioral Sciences

    Goal:

    To increase students' knowledge of how historians and social and behavioral scientists discover, describe, and explain the behaviors and interactions among individuals, groups, institutions, events, and ideas.

    Students will be able to:

    • Employ the methods and data that historians and social and behavioral scientists use to investigate the human condition.
    • Examine social institutions and processes across a range of historical periods and cultures.
    • Use and critique alternative explanatory systems or theories.
    • Develop and communicate alternative explanations or solutions for contemporary social issues.
