This pathway is for those students who anticipate pursuing baccalaureate degrees in the social sciences (e.g. sociology, psychology, political science, anthropology). This pathway also prepares students to pursue professions in social work, counseling, law, or public service for example. The flexibility of the Associate in Arts degree allows 19 elective credits. Up to sixteen of those credits could be from occupational and/or professional courses; allowing a student interested in law, for example, to augment their studies, with courses from our business programs (such as Business Law).
Complete the first two years of your four-year degree at approximately one-third the cost. Get started by talking to a Northland admissions representative about connecting your educational goals with our Social & Behavioral Sciences program.Request Information »
