In Social Sciences students develop the ability to conduct research and make connections between diverse topics, with the purpose of acquiring greater understanding and broad perspectives about their immediate and global environment. Students learn to understand and assume rights and responsibilities in a democratic society. When studying the development of societies, learners analyze events from an interdisciplinary perspective and understand their historical relevance over time. The specific work is based on bibliographic research, including primary sources, oral and written presentations, discussions, and debates where the development of a critical and reflective spirit is sought. This area is crucial for the MEC since the emphasis of the institution's curriculum is on Social Sciences. The specific competencies proposed for this area, in accordance with the disciplines taught at ASA, are:
