Closing the division office door is not a decision that has been made lightly. We believe it is our responsibility to follow public health guidelines regarding COVID-19, and the recommendation of our Acting President, Dr. Kristen Jones.

The Social Sciences occupy a position between the Natural Sciences and the Humanities, with considerable overlap in both fields. Indeed, some of Bellevue College’s Social Science courses earn credit in the Natural Sciences, while others receive credit in the Humanities.  This position notwithstanding, the Social Sciences also stand uniquely alone, having given rise to some of the most important intellectual work of the modern world. This work has deepened our knowledge of humanity and laid bare the complexity and richness of the human condition.  It has, as well, gifted humanity with a multiplicity of disciplines.  Among these are Anthropology, Business Administration, Criminal Justice, Cultural and Ethnic Studies, Economics, Geography, History, International Studies, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology.
