Mission

The faculty of the Department of Social Sciences are engaged scholars and teachers who are dedicated to rigorous investigation and analysis of our social world and to developing critical thinking skills in our students that can be used to understand and address pressing social issues.  Through our research, we contribute to knowledge creation in our fields of study as well as the betterment of our communities.  Through our teaching, we educate students in the principles, theories, and methodologies informing the social sciences and encourage students to apply these skills in the communities in which they live.  The programs offered by the Department of Social Sciences emphasize research interpretation, application, and communication skills called for by many professions and graduate programs.
