Social Science Open House
The Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences hosted an open house for Caltech undergraduates during the 2017 spring term, featuring Bing Professor of Neuroscience, Behavioral Biology, and Economics Antonio Rangel. The open house offered students an overview of four areas of concentration (options/majors) in social sciences at Caltech: Business, Economics, and Management; Economics; Political Science; and Psychology/Neuroscience. Professor Rangel explained the recommended course sequences and timing for "concentrators" and majors. He also talked about his colleagues' research and where undergraduate research opportunities may exist.
