Welcome to Social Sciences
The School of Social Sciences includes those fields of study dealing with human interaction, societal institutions, and individuals. We offer seven exciting fields of study:
- Criminology and Criminal Justice (B.S.): the study of crime and the criminal justice system.
- History (B.A. and B.S.): the study of change and continuity in human societies over time.
- International Studies (B.A.): an interdisciplinary major equipping students to live and work in a globalized world.
- Journalism (B.A.): the study of the social, political, psychological, historical and economic impact of the mass media and public relations.
- Political Science (B.A.): the study of governments and how they function.
- Psychology (B.A. and B.S.): the scientific study of behavior processes.
- Sociology (B.A. and B.S.): the scientific study of human society and social behavior.
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, or Public Sector Management.
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.
