Social Science Department

Description:

As per a dictionary definition, social science is:

1. The study of human society and of individual relationships in and to society.

  1. A scholarly or scientific discipline that deals with such study, generally regarded as including sociology, psychology, anthropology, economics, political science, and history.

The Social Science Department at Concord High School is composed of dedicated teachers who prepare their students for success in their future endeavors through the skills and curriculum learned in our courses. We focus on developing the three “R’s” in our classrooms at all times, Rigor, Relevance and Relationships. Through this approach we feel that students will not only master the content of each course, but take away valuable life-sills that can be used across disciplines. We offer 4 required graduation courses and two electives as follows:

            10th Grade: AP World History and College Prep World History

            11th Grade: Honors US History and College Prep US History

            12th Grade: AP Economics, Honors Government, College Prep Economics and College Prep Government

            Electives: Sociology/Psychology, AP Sociology/Psychology
