School of Humanities & Social Sciences

A college education that will serve you throughout your life does more than develop technical skills – it fosters the ability to learn, reinvent yourself, and solve some of the world’s weightiest problems. Courses within the School of Humanities & Social Sciences will teach you how to think creatively and critically, to reason, and to ask questions. These uniquely human attributes can never be replicated by artificial intelligence or machines, and they will ensure your ability to create value and find success in a rapidly changing world. Companies and organizations that want to stay globally competitive realize they need employees who can collaborate as team members and who are multi-disciplinary, creative thinkers. The School of Humanities & Social Sciences coursework prepares you to meet these needs by challenging you to develop problem-solving skills and to gain insights from a variety of sources.
