The Social Sciences Division at PCC


From psychology to philosophy to ethnic studies to history, social science courses will deepen your understanding of culture and humanity. Prepare to transfer with a Social Sciences major, fulfill some GE Requirements, or take an elective. Whichever path you're on, our courses will engage you in discussion and develop your independent thinking and critical reading and writing, as you explore the major topics that face human society.
