Dean: Walter R. Jacobs

The mission of the College of Social Sciences is to educate students in human behavior, in its many past and present cultural forms, in individual, group, national and international contexts, and to empower students as democratic participants in a rapidly changing world. Students develop a solid foundation in the social sciences, and understand how knowledge in the social sciences is acquired and evaluated. Students think analytically about themselves and the world in which they live. They prepare for a wide variety of careers in education, the professions, business, government, and social services. This mission is supported by a proud tradition of scholarship, creative activity, and service to the community.
