Social Sciences

The study of social sciences delves into the cultures, behaviors and ideas of mankind. At Faulkner, the social science coursework is taught through the lens of Christianity. Small classes encourage a comfortable atmosphere where lively discussion and debate is the norm. Our students engage in internships with local governmental and non-profit agencies and state and county archive departments, guided field trips and activity-based research for a broad experience under the advisement of caring professors.

Graduates from our department have gone on to successful careers in government service, library and archive management, teaching and a wide variety of research programs. We boast an 80 percent acceptance rate among those who have applied for graduate schools and law school. Thanks to one-on-one attention and real-life work experience, the Faulkner social science student is a versatile thinker and worker with the ability to make connections between people, things and ideas.
