English and Social/Behavioral Sciences

Courses in the English, Social and Behavioral Sciences are designed to assist students toward a better understanding of the cultures and histories of people and institutions in a complex world that involves the dynamic patterns of social, political, economic and human factors. The problems we face can best be solved by examining them in a scientific manner within their proper historical context. The English, Social and Behavioral Sciences Division strives to bring the tools of scientific methodology to the study of people, past and present. Grossmont College offers most of the basic lower division courses in Anthropology, Cross-Cultural Studies, English, English as a Second Language (ESL), History, Philosophy, Political Economy, Psychology, Religious Studies, Social Science (inter-disciplinary), and Sociology. Many courses satisfy general education requirements at Grossmont and at four-year colleges and universities. In addition, the courses offered fulfill some or all lower division requirements for a variety of majors.
