Through its course of study, the department provides a comprehensive view of a complex whole at each grade level. The program offers students a global perspective of a shared history as well as an interdependent future for all cultures. Learning concepts, skills, and values is cumulative. Topic and skill sets will be continually expanded, illuminated, and applied according to student development.
Students can expect, on average, approximately two hours of homework a week from the freshmen/sophomore foundational Social Studies courses (Cultures & Civilizations, U.S. History). Students can expect, on average, approximately three hours of homework a week from the additional Social Studies courses.
