  Newark Undergraduate Catalog 2020-2022 School of Arts and Sciences-Newark Newark College of Arts and Sciences Academic Requirements Social Sciences  

Social Sciences

The Newark College of Arts and Science's learning objectives call for multiple modes of inquiry, critical and creative thinking, an understanding of intercultural relations, and diversity. All students must therefore complete 6 credits in the social sciences.

The courses, consisting of two 3-credit classes, must come from a list of approved courses offered by the Departments of Sociology and Anthropology, Economics, Political Science, or Psychology.

The two courses do not need to be offered by the same department: 3 credits in economics and 3 credits in sociology, for instance, will be accepted.

For an updated list of courses that satisfy this requirement, please refer to Degree Navigator.
