    DESCRIPTION
    The B.S. in Social Science with a major in Interdisciplinary Social Science (ISS) offers students a liberal arts education that helps them become informed citizens who understand the myriad issues emerging at every level of society.

Students build on this foundation with concentrations in economics, geography, or sociology.
