The Placer Social Science Department offers courses intended to prepare our students for both college and adult life as productive and contributing citizens.  Our courses include not only the requisite social science courses necessary for graduation and college admittance, but also electives that are among the most popular courses on campus as well as numerous Advanced Placement offerings.  
Our courses are taught in an engaging and enthusiastic manner by our dedicated staff that is not only highly trained in their respective areas of expertise, but among the most active in extracurricular offerings available to our students.  We offer several A-G electives such as AVID, PsychologyMilitary HistoryEnvironmental Studies and Geography and our staff is involved in such extracurricular activities as FootballBasketballSnowboardingMountain Biking and PoliticalDebate
The Placer Social Science Department also leads school-wide community service projects in both the Fall and Spring semesters.  These projects are designed to not only expose our students to the benefits of volunteering in the community, but also to assist the less fortunate in the Auburn area.
