Social Sciences Department



Social Sciences are the fields of study that concern themselves with the scientific study of society and behavior.

Various disciplines at KVCC fall under the umbrella of Social Sciences, including:

  • Anthropology
  • Communication
  • Mental Health
  • Political Science
  • Psychology
  • Sociology
Social Scientists contribute valuable information to nearly every human endeavor.  We strive to apply the scientific method to the understanding of human behavior, health, wellness, and all facets of human existence.  It can be said that there are no bounds as to what the social sciences study since so much lies within the human experience.
