The Division of Social Science incorporates traditional major and minor programs that seek to promote intellectual development and a better understanding of society; its history, political systems, psychology, social structures, and human interaction not only as personal as the individual but international in scope. The division offers these academic disciplines within a liberal arts framework of Christian higher education as outlined in Campbellsville University’s stated goals.
To meet the University’s goals the division provides majors and/or minors in criminal justice, history, political science, psychology, sociology, and social science areas (with or without teaching certification) leading to a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree. An Associate of Science degree is available in certain disciplines. These programs of study are solidly grounded in the liberal arts tradition and promote intellectual inquiry, critical thinking, reading, writing, and research skills to prepare students for graduate studies, various professional schools, teacher certification, and careers outside academe.
