Social Science is the study of social systems and if you have a desire to be a true social change agent, social science is the program for you. Graceland’s small class sizes allow for an interactive learning environment and opportunities for students to discover their true passions.
Social Science is really the study of the social systems in which we've all been socialized to live. If you have any compassion to be a true social change agent, Social Sciences, Education, those are places that lead you on direct paths and your only work to do is to unpack what has purpose and meaning to you. In your education classes in your social sciences, history, sociology, criminal justice, psychology, how are you going to use that to impact the world?
Graceland's programs really are more interactive than I think a lot of schools are. Classes are always below 30. So there's always that special connection with your professor. Professors are nearly always open outside of class time. They're always there, if you need it.
