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.
