Created six years ago, the graduate program in social science offers opportunities for professional enhancement in the field. Explore timely and relevant social science issues from a variety of academic perspectives. The program is open to all post-baccalaureate students and may be of particular interest to experienced teachers and working professionals in the public sector and international organizations.
An Interdisciplinary Approach
Follow a program of study coordinated by the departments of Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology, Anthropology and Criminal Justice. Gain familiarity with research, theoretical advances, applications and methodological approaches related to current topics in the social sciences and the world. The graduate program is truly an interdisciplinary program, drawing on the resources and expertise of multiple academic areas.
Customize Your Program
Build your foundation in the social sciences with courses from the viewpoints and perspectives of the geographer, the economist and the historian, along with course work on East Asian security issues, American politics and developmental human learning. Then choose one track of specialization—either global analysis or general—and one discipline within that given track.
Convenient, evening courses make it easy to continue your graduate studies. Faculty members work closely with you to prepare a final portfolio of your work or a master’s thesis.
