There is a strong commitment to undergraduate education in the School of Social Sciences. All faculty in the School teach undergraduates. The School strives to create a rich and meaningful educational experience. One of the goals of the School is to give undergraduate students opportunities to have real life experiences so they are able to make informed decisions about what they would like to do after they graduate. To accomplish this goal, the school has created Gateway.
Gateway opportunities include research, internship and international experiences. All components allow students to experience life outside the classroom and require the use of critical thinking and analytical skills. View the Gateway video below:
While each department and program in the Social Sciences is distinctive, students will find that, whatever their academic focus, there are courses in more than one department that will be of interest to them. We encourage all students to explore the offerings of other departments and programs, rather than to presume that there is only one course of study that will satisfy their needs. The School of Social Sciences offers the following majors: Anthropology, Economics, Linguistics, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Sport Management, Cognitive Sciences, Managerial Studies, Policy Studies.
