> Social Sciences
The social sciences encompass the study of the
mind to studies of language, society, culture, the economy, politics,
history, race, class, gender, and the human uses of the environment.
Social science departments include anthropology, economics, ethnic
studies, geography, history, linguistics, political science, psychology,
sociology, speech/communications studies, and women’s studies.
By exploring the foundations of language, communication, decision-making,
knowledge and perception, UC social scientists seek to grasp the
underlying forces shaping society.
