Waukegan District 60

Department of Social Science

Welcome to the website of the Waukegan Social Science Department. I invite you to spend a few minutes learning about our programs, our faculty, students, academic activities, and public programs through our website.

Our faculty and students study history from ancient times to the present and subjects ranging from empires to women and gender, the environment and climate change to political economy and law, and popular culture and intellectual life to science, technology, and medicine. The department actively supports and encourages innovation in teaching and research, including the use of new technology.

We are committed to increasing and enriching diversity among our faculty and students. Our department has a wonderfully helpful professional staff. Students can always find welcoming smiles in our classes, where knowledgeable administrators and faculty will happily answer any questions concerning studies and life in Waukegan Public Schools. We are also ready to support student initiatives to create and participate in intellectual communities that extend beyond the classroom.
