Social science is an integrated curriculum involving the disciplines of anthropology, communication studies, economics, geography, history, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology.
Social Sciences Hub
The Social Sciences department, in partnership with the A2B program, hosted a grand opening in October featuring faculty speakers in Social Sciences disciplines.
Social Sciences Hub is located in building 9, room 307, adjacent to the library reference desk. The Social Sciences Hub serves as a lab/resource space for all Social Science departments, a place for their respective clubs to meet, to work in study groups, to get tutoring, and a general academic milieu for our students.

The mission of Cañada College's Social Sciences is to educate students in human behavior in its many past and present cultural forms, in individual, group, national and international contexts, and to empower students as democratic participants in a rapidly changing world. Students develop a solid foundation in the social sciences, and understand how knowledge in the social sciences is acquired and evaluated. The social sciences challenge students to think analytically about themselves and the world in which they live.
