These disciplines not only are the backbone of most programs at the College but also provide the foundation of an educated person. The AHSS courses allow students to develop the love and discipline of learning while building vital skills such as critical thinking, the power of analysis, appreciation for diversity of expression, and an overall preparation to understand and face the challenges of modern society. Students embracing studies in these disciplines will be transformed into not just learned persons but lifelong-learning individuals.
