Behavioral and Social Sciences Courses
Central Piedmont offers high-quality, rigorous, and relevant anthropology, economics, political science, psychology, and sociology courses for general education, core, and elective credit. While no degrees are currently offered in these disciplines, these courses meet the needs and interests of students working towards a degree, diploma, or certificate, those who plan to transfer to four-year institutions, visiting students who wish to transfer credit back to their home institution, and others who are simply interested in these subjects.
