Social Studies

Social Studies Department Philosophy

One of Justin-Siena’s Lasallian Educational Outcomes is that students will “participate in the global community as responsible citizens.” To that end, the Social Studies Department prepares future citizens to understand human development from ancient civilizations through today’s political, economic, and social issues, and to effect change in the world around them.  Courses in history, economics, government, law, and psychology invite students to refine their skills of inquiry, analytical reading and writing, and critical thinking.  Students engage in independent and collaborative research, discussion, and projects in an environment of respect, dialog, and appreciation for the diversity and complexity of people’s histories, cultures, worldviews, and religions.

Justin-Siena Graduation Requirement:  Three years required
UC/CSU Admissions Requirement:  Two years required
