About the Program
Why This Major Is Relevant
The social sciences help us understand how we relate to others in an increasingly diverse, polarized, and multicultural society. High school students face a world that is growing more and more complex economically, religiously, politically, and socially. Social science educators play a critical role in helping students understand the dynamics at play and encouraging them to interact with others in a compassionate, ethical manner. APU social science majors are uniquely equipped to prepare students to be forces for change in their neighborhoods, country, and world.
