The Social Studies Department promotes the development skills of inquiry, organizational and critical thinking, reading and communication through courses that allow students to gain a strong knowledge base in the social sciences. Additionally, technology is integrated into the curriculum to afford students the opportunity to further develop their understanding of the present, develop their capacity for understanding multiple perspectives, and subsequent tolerances of diversity and change. Social Studies courses also  foster civic competence – that is the ability to become informed, responsible citizens who are able to contribute to the well-being of their communities.
