IIT's Department of Social Sciences offers three undergraduate degrees:
- a Bachelor of Science in Sociology,
- a Bachelor of Science in Political Science, and
- an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Science in Social Sciences.
The department offers minors in political science and sociology, and participates with other IIT departments in offering interdisciplinary minors in the philosophy and sociology of science; law and society; technology and human affairs; and urban affairs.
We also offer a pair of accelerated degree programs: a B.S./J.D. program with IIT's Chicago-Kent College of Law that can be completed in six years and a B.S./M.P.A. program with IIT Stuart School of Business that can be completed in five years.
Our department also offers courses to help IIT students in other majors round out their educations and meet the university's General Education requirements for graduation. Note that only the courses from Sociology, Anthropology and Political Science disciplines are administered through our department. Other social sciences courses are offered through the Department of Psychology (psychology) and the Stuart School of Business (economics).
