Social Science and Special Programs

The BA in Social Science is designed for students who have a broad interest in the behavioral and social sciences. It is an interdisciplinary program with a curriculum from the disciplines and programs of the College of the Behavioral and Social Sciences and the Department of History. The program has two options to best meet the needs of our students: multidisciplinary studies and specialization studies. Both options are available to distance education students who do not reside in Chico.

The multidisciplinary studies option is chosen by students desiring a general social science background. It contains coursework in Economics, History, Geography, Political Science, Anthropology, and Sociology. Some students combine this option with a teaching credential program in order to teach grades 6-12. The teaching credential is obtained through the School of Education.
