The central problem of the social sciences is to show how the behavior of individuals
creates the characteristics of groups.
– Dr. George C. Homans, The Nature of Social Science
The study of human behavior, relationships and broad social enterprises (past, present, and future) are each a focus of USAO’s Division of Social Sciences and Business.
In this division, students experience comprehensive and rigorous instruction that prepares them for productive careers and further academic pursuits… all within six social sciences fields of study—each with its own interdisciplinary orientation—and a business program emphasizing interdisciplinary collaboration and professional preparation within four areas of concentration.
While emphasizing a high quality classroom experience, faculty also maintain scholarly pursuits, and frequently work with students in research projects that link departments and students to the wider academic community.
