Human & Social Sciences

We train professionals to understand people, address social issues, and meet individual needs.

Address complex, real-world social issues or help individuals and families meet their personal needs in a variety of settings and occupations. Our unique applied learning approach, along with our long-standing reputation in this cluster area, places our graduates in high demand.

Learning hands on in small class sizes helped me make connections with my peers and professors.
