A minor in Social Sciences enables students to master a second teachable subject they can combine with their Art or Design major if they intend to pursue a teaching career at the secondary or primary levels. Students may also find that adding Social Sciences as a second area of expertise will further prepare them for graduate studies. The Social Sciences are increasingly important to design practice. Social Science subjects have emerged as a key addition to practice-based studio degrees as they open new career opportunities in design ethnography, marketing and other design-based consultancy applications that rely on Social Science methodologies and practices.
