Welcome to the OTC Social Sciences Department
The primary mission of the Social Science Department at Ozarks Technical Community College is to provide students with accessible, high quality, and thought-provoking general education courses. Our courses in History, Political Science, Anthropology, and Geography will develop and increase students’ abilities to retain, analyze, and apply information in both academic and professional settings. Success in the Social Science Department hinges on the ability of the student to think, read, and write in a logical manner. After mastery of these abilities, the student will be able to synthesize and apply learned principles with critical thinking strategies.
