Episode 77: Academic Disciplines, Social Sciences

February 5, 2024

by Brooke Thames

In the past few episodes of College Admissions Insider, we've covered academic disciplines one by one.

So far, we've covered sciences, mathematics, the arts, humanities, engineering and management. We encourage you to jump back and listen to those episodes if you haven't yet. Today, we're rounding out this series with the social sciences.

On this episode, we'll get to know the kinds of majors available in these disciplines, what management looks like in college, and the careers you can break into post-graduation.

Our guest is Michelle Johnson, associate Dean of faculty in the social sciences at Bucknell.
