Social Studies

A deep understanding of our larger social, political, and historical context is necessary in order to understand the changing world we live in.

NOVA’s History and Geography programs prepare students by improving their research capabilities, note taking skills, ability to read and retain content, and interpret both data and cultural context. Through active and interactive classes, students learn to understand and defend various perspectives, recognize bias, and acquire the skills necessary to be informed, analytical citizens.
