The Social Sciences

Social and Historical Studies

The College of Arts and Sciences is your place to study how the world is shaped by human behavior. Here, curiosity leads to connection, by discovering patterns, drawing conclusions, and driving positive change that brings out the best in human behavior and develops better societal structures that affect people’s lives every day.

The social sciences use scientific methodologies to study the relationships and influences that have the power to impact society. We learn how to work together for the greater good, finding purpose in service, personal growth through contemplation, and lasting fulfilment knowing our work is helping improve the institutions that shape our very lives.
