Program Outcomes: Students will develop essential skills across diverse disciplines: producing college-level essays and research papers, analyzing the multifaceted impacts of economic, historical, political, psychological, and sociological factors on society, applying mathematical and scientific concepts to problem-solving, and integrating humanities knowledge with historical and cultural contexts.
