Social Sciences & Human Services

Make an impact.
Study the way people think, interact, grow, and respond to the world around them.


The Social Sciences and Human Services Department is where ideas meet reality at Parkland College. Take up the study of anthropology, child development, criminal justice, economics, education, history, political science, psychology, social work, or sociology and discover how classroom learning becomes a launching pad for a rewarding career. You will learn new ways of thinking and build skill sets that prepare you to apply what you have learned in the world beyond Parkland’s doors.
