Liberal Arts - Social Sciences A.A. Degree
Social Science at Middlesex is a rich exploration of human behavior, social relationships, and issues surrounding individuals’ interactions in society. Students of social science gain broad experience in a set of skills that prepares them for future study in fields such as anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, and political science.
The Liberal Arts-Social Science degree is the most flexible of all our Social Science programs, allowing students to build a strong intellectual experience that reflects their varied interests in people and society.
Upon completing this program students will be able to:
- Articulate their place in human culture and the global society from a multi-disciplinary perspective acquired through the study of the social sciences, humanities, history, natural sciences, mathematics, arts, and languages.
- Define key terms used in the social sciences.
- Apply key theories in the social sciences to current societal problems.
- Create written documents using APA style that are clear, well organized, and grammatically accurate.
Our students transfer to 4-year colleges and universities around the globe. We’ve had students transfer to every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.
The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements are being worked out with institutions granting baccalaureate degrees to facilitate the transfer process. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.
