Applying scientific and societal theories to explore the inner workings of our world

The Department of Applied Sciences includes Sociology, Psychology, Meteorology and Economics.

Sociology and Psychology courses tie community and social organization and psychological principles to various professional fields. Meteorology courses apply our atmosphere's structure and the complex processes taking place within it to their impacts in aviation. Economics courses make important connections regarding the way that individuals, groups, governments and businesses make resource allocations, and the consequences of those choices for people, nations and society.

The knowledge gained in these areas of study will strongly connect to other courses in the student's degree program and directly translate to the skills required of today's professionals.

The department’s faculty members have research and teaching interests that span a broad range of fields and encourage critical thinking and scientific inquiry to explore social, financial and environmental phenomena.
