Use Science to Understand Society with the B.A. in Social Science

At the frontiers of science and humanities. 

With all the complexity of the modern world, it’s sometimes difficult to take a step back and observe the bigger societal picture. More than ever, we need people who are comfortable exploring the many facets of human group behavior, challenging the status quo, discerning context and adding to our collective understanding of how societies function.

Social science is devoted to the study of societies and the relationships among individuals, and encompasses diverse fields such as communication, applied psychology, criminology, public relations, sociology and history. The B.A. in Social Science degree at Regis University 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.

We’ll prepare you with highly marketable skills, allowing you to accelerate your career or lay the foundation for future study across a myriad of professions, including law enforcement, business, public relations, communication, applied psychology, criminology, sociology, history and more.

With small class sizes, faculty mentors and a thoughtful curriculum focused on critical thinking, you’ll cultivate your leadership skills and develop your understanding of what makes society tick. The Regis B.A. in Social Science is taught in an 8-week online course format, with multiple start dates per year to maximize flexibility — perfect for busy working adults. There’s no fee to apply and no letters of recommendation or GRE score required.
