The world is an infinitely complex, often challenging, place to live. With a degree in one of the undergraduate social science majors at Southern New Hampshire University, you'll gain a thorough understanding of the forces working behind the scenes of society, as well as how those forces affect human beings on an individual level.
You’ll develop critical-thinking and communication skills important to communicating effectively in many formats. You’ll also enjoy small class sizes and easy access to expert faculty and dedicated advisors. In the SNHU psychology major, you may choose to engage in any number of practical learning experiences as an intern or volunteer. This may include gaining firsthand experience at organizations like the Concord Mental Health Court, Manchester Mental Health Center or Riverbend Community Mental Health. Alternatively, you may work with faculty on research, presentations and publishing.
Our emphasis is on professional practices as well as scholarship, with a career orientation and experiential learning approach. We provide first-person experience in analyzing and dealing with processes, problems and institutions of modern society. Partnering with the other undergraduate social science majors and with the community, the sociology major emphasizes a hands-on approach to learning.
