About the Department and Majors

The UW-Platteville Department of Social Sciences, a combined program in the liberal arts, offers courses of study that challenge students to develop an understanding of the dynamics of individual and social behavior from a number of perspectives. The department offers programs in ethnic studies, international studies, political science, social and environmental justice, sociology, and women's and gender studies. Descriptions of these programs and courses are found on the individual pages for these programs.

While the study of social sciences may also include history, geography, criminal justice and psychology, these programs are listed under their own department headings.
