The political science program at Wingate is unique in that we are a teaching school. That means our faculty’s highest priority is having you participate in the best education for your career path.
Psychology is one of the most popular majors at Wingate. Our new curriculum was designed with the help of experts at the American Psychological Association. Creative touch from nationally recognized professors like Dr. Jay Wilder allows students to explore the role of psychology in cinema, and hands-on learning complements what you do in the classroom.
The sociology major at Wingate is unique. You receive a well-rounded introduction to the social sciences with an in-depth focus on marriage and family. The sociology faculty also places a strong emphasis on research, and most students participate in at least one research project. After graduation, you are prepared to enter the job market or continue with an advanced degree in graduate school.
