Welcome to Social Sciences

School of Social Sciences Dean - Kelly RyanThe School of Social Sciences includes those fields of study dealing with human interaction, societal institutions, and individuals. We offer nine undergraduate majors, two graduate certificates, and twelve minors. Whether you are seeking to boost your credentials or exploring your passions, you have come to the right place!

The School of Social Sciences has graduate programming for those of you wishing to continue your education after finishing up your undergraduate degree. We are excited to now offer a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling for graduates as they prepare to become licensed mental health counselors in the State of Indiana. Our Master of Interdisciplinary Studies (M.I.S.) program gives you the flexibility to design your own degree, one that blends your interests, talents and experience in a body of work that demonstrates a broad knowledge base and command of methods of inquiry across multiple disciplines. Partnering with other IU campuses, IU Southeast offers an online Master of Science in Criminal Justice & Public Safety for professionals looking to advance their careers. The Psychology department offers a Certificate in Program Leadership and Evaluation for professionals looking to enhance their leadership and administrative skills. The Graduate Certificate in Modern World History is designed to give educators and history lovers desired coursework to expand their marketability and knowledge.

The school also offers programs of study for those students looking to extend their knowledge without majoring in one of our fields. Minoring in one of our major fields or Pre-Law is an excellent way to build your credentials. We also offer undergraduate or post-graduate certificates, including Asian Affairs, European Affairs, Latin American Affairs, Public Sector Management, Conflict Analysis and Resolution, and Diversity and Intercultural Competency.

Faculty of the School of Social Sciences are dedicated to providing our students with the educational tools that will enable them to become the leaders of tomorrow. Each program provides students with a challenging curriculum where students learn the skills that employers demand, such as written and oral communication, critical thinking, and teamwork. Our graduates are employed at all levels of government, at non-profit agencies, and at businesses of all kinds. Take a look at some of our recent success stories.
