Seminars that Fulfill WAY-SI

Social Inquiry (SI)

Human beings are social animals.  To understand human behavior and exercise responsible citizenship, you’ll need tools that allow you to explore and study the behaviors and propensities at the root of society as well as the ways in which those behaviors and propensities vary across space, time, and individual circumstances.

You’ll need to take two courses in Social Inquiry (SI).
