Social sciences and education degrees have multiple branches:  Anthropology, Early Elementary Education, Psychology, or Sociology.  These areas can lead to a variety of career fields in human services such as counseling or social work or education.  All of these areas explore people and their interactions with each other and the environments around them.  These degrees help set a solid foundation for students to transfer to a four-year university.
