The BLS Online Social Sciences Concentration
The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, Social Sciences Concentration, is an online degree completion program for adult students who have earned a minimum of 60 hours of transferable credit at other institutions. The program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to complete their baccalaureate degree in an e-learning environment by gaining a broad-based understanding of the social sciences. The social sciences are the fields of academic scholarship that explore aspects of human behavior and societies.
The program is designed to enhance the student's ability to engage theory and practice in the social sciences to better understand human behavior, activities, organizations, and cultures; to critically analyze social science related information in the popular media; to explain the interconnections, differences and interdependence among the social sciences; to read, evaluate and interpret research in the social sciences; and to communicate clearly and effectively in an appropriate professional style.
Unlike the BLS Humanities Concentration, which is fully online, students in the BLS Social Sciences concentration can complete the major with a combination of online, on-campus, and/or transferable credit, according to whichever method best suits their needs (UNCG requires that at least 12sh of the major must be satisfied with UNCG institutional credit).
