Social Studies

Social studies classes are designed with two primary aims: developing students’ awareness and interaction with society around them and providing opportunities to show the relevance of social studies processes to their lives in the arts. Social studies courses offered include sociology, contemporary world issues, urban geography, advanced American studies, 20th century world history, art history and Collision Course. Research is central to all social studies classes. In each class, students complete at least one major research project in the interest of developing student confidence and literacy.
