    Hello guys,
    I am having some trouble with the aacomas course classification. Aren't History, geography, communication and African American Litterature supposed to be classified as Social and Behavioral Sciences?
    And why these courses are not included in such category by the AACOMAS?

      I don't believe that those courses are considered behavioral/social sciences. Classes like sociology and psychology are the ones they are looking for...perhaps a human factors course will also count for credit in that area. Regardless, you can always email AACOM and ask them any questions about your application. They will also review your application after it is sent to make sure classes are classified the right way.

        I see. From what I understood the following courses would fulfill
        Social/Behavioral Science.

        Community Health
        Criminal Justice
        Educational Psychology
        Ethnic Studies
        Human Sexuality
        Personal Health
        Physiological Ethics
        Social Science
        Social Work/Sociology

        Those courses you listed do not fall under Social/Behavioral Science.

        You can always apply now and fulfill the prereqs this fall, spring, or next summer.
