Some schools will offer courses in the social sciences, too. Those might include, for example, sociology, anthropology, psychology, economics, or human geography. If your high schooler is interested in pursuing a social science in college, they might want to get a taste of it now if they can. But many high schools won’t offer these courses, so don’t worry if your student doesn’t have choices like those! If your child is interested in a course that isn’t offered at their school, they should check with their guidance counselor about doing coursework at a local community college, which is often an option.
