Use science to understand human society.

Social science is devoted to the study of societies and the relationships among individuals and encompasses diverse fields such as communications, applied psychology, criminology, public relations, sociology and history. The B.A. in Social Science degree at Regis equips you with a strong foundational knowledge of the social sciences, including an emphasis on community involvement and leadership.

Unlike other social science degrees that require specialization in one area, our degree allows you to combine courses from the behavioral and social sciences according to your own career goals and interests.
