Divisional Spotlight: Social & Behavioral Sciences

Alan Flurry

In his Summa Theologica, St. Thomas Aquinas devised five arguments for the existence of God, known as the Five Ways, that subsequently proved highly influential. The Franklin College is comprised of five divisions that are also highly influential in the education of all students at the University of Georgia. We continue to welcome 2024 by highlighting the divisional nature of our organizational structure and the academic units contained in each division.

Today, we highlight the SOCIAL & BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES:

Investigating society and the relationships among individuals within a society, the Division of the Social & Behavioral Sciences is comprised of branches of knowledge reaching from the Age of the Enlightenment into the 21st century of human activity and existence.
