About Us

The Division of Social Sciences fosters a community of active scholars.  Faculty and students work collaboratively within and across diverse disciplines to seek, build and apply empirically driven knowledge about human, social and institutional interaction.

Instruction is vibrant and relevant to the time and world in which we live and encourages responsible citizenship for today and tomorrow.  Through classroom learning and applied settings such as supervised internships and mentored research projects, students in the social sciences acquire an understanding of society while developing the analytical tools with which to provide solutions to a diverse range of social problems.

The Division of Social Sciences is pleased to host a series of Election 2020 lectures, panels and student events.  Division faculty are committed to supporting student learning via civic engagement and facilitating discussion of the critical issues facing the electorate.
