Lecturer, Social Science Program Director and Sociology Undergraduate Director: Dr. Michael Armato
Students majoring in the Social Sciences Interdisciplinary B.S. program are provided with interdisciplinary breadth and depth in the Social Sciences as they fulfill the requirements of three separate social science minors of their choice, a statistics course, and a methodology course. The Social Science minors are housed in Anthropology, Communication, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Women’s and Gender Studies. This major supports UCF’s goal of offering the best undergraduate education available in Florida with flexibility that is absent in most discipline-specific programs.
Social Sciences (B.S.) may be completed fully online, although not all elective options or program prerequisites may be offered online. Newly admitted students choosing to complete this program exclusively via UCF online classes may enroll with a reduction in campus-based fees.
- Students who change degree programs and select this major must adopt the most current catalog.
- Students must meet the residency requirements specified in each minor.
- Special topics courses may be used if they are acceptable within the specific minor.
- Grades below “C” (2.0) in lower level courses and core courses are not accepted.
- Students must achieve a minimum cumulative UCF GPA of 2.0 in all courses satisfying major requirements.
- Students must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 in each Social Science discipline.
