Social Sciences

Unique opportunities offered by Summer Discovery

Why do you think and feel the way you do? What provokes people to make certain decisions? Social sciences are a group of academic disciplines dedicated to examining society and include Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology, Linguistics, and Political Science. Our social sciences programs develop your understanding of human behavior - from how individual minds work, to how societies as a whole develop, function, and influence the world. Gain a deeper understanding of yourself, how your brain influences your experiences, and how you learn and communicate. Our courses are geared toward high school students and specified to fit the learning styles considered most effective for young adults.

Our hands-on Social Sciences programs allow you to:

  • Explore topics in abnormal, bio, cognitive, developmental, and social psychology
  • Learn the basic concepts and issues in the study of human society
  • Analyze how behavior shapes and influences the behavior of others
  • Strengthen your critical thinking and communication skills
  • Conduct controlled experiments to enhance the classroom experience

  • …and many more!

With a firm grasp on the real life applications of the social sciences, you, as a student, will have an advantage over your peers. Your experience at Summer Discovery will make you a more well-rounded, knowledgeable individual with enhanced academic and life skills.
