Glendale Community College
Social Sciences Division
Welcome to the Social Sciences Division, the largest academic division on campus! We hope you make yourself comfortable and browse through our website. You will be able to find all of our highly credentialed and excellent instructors, their office hours and contact information, and even some of their personal web pages. What is the Social Sciences Division? We are an academic division including the following disciplines: Anthropology, Child Development, Economics, Ethnic Studies, Geography, History, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Social Science.
Courses are designed to support the college mission by providing opportunities for learning that might develop a person’s global awareness and appreciation, communication, reasoning, critical thinking, personal responsibility, information competency, and knowledge application. Want to know what makes humans so different (or similar) to other mammals? Take an Anthropology course!
Ever wondered why people always face the doors when crammed into an elevator? Sociology may be just what you’re looking for. Think knowing about history is the best way not to repeat it? You get the point! The Social Sciences Division offers classes to make your time at Glendale College both educational and interesting! If you have any questions, feel free to stop by our office in San Rafael, Room 310 between the hours or 8am and 4pm, or call 818.240.1000 ext. 5454.
