Department of Social Sciences

An education in the social sciences is applicable in a broad selection of career fields. The Department of Social Sciences provides solid education, scholarship, and training in the social sciences through a foundation in the liberal arts that prepares students for successful careers or continued education in graduate school.

Faculty in the department offer a professionally focused education enhanced with out-of-the-classroom engagement opportunities. Students have access to state-of-the-art facilities, and close ties with professional communities provide valuable connections. The Oral History Center allows students to get involved in interviews and serves as a repository of archival materials.
