Dr. Daphne R. Chamberlain, Dean of Social Sciences

In the Social Sciences Division, we explore the common elements and collective dimensions of the human experience. As the largest academic division on campus, our programs offers interesting and relevant courses, outstanding faculty and staff, and excellent preparation for graduate school or work after college. Our full-time faculty are exceptional classroom teachers and academic advisors whose prime mission is to assist students in becoming more self-aware and cognizant of the local, national, and international environment around them. The programs provide students with the vision and skills necessary to be effective communicators, researchers, leaders, and advocators of social justice.

The Division of Social Sciences offers a broad and exciting range of majors, minors, emphases, and certificates that will prepare you to take your place in a rapidly changing world—becoming a strong voice against injustice and advocate for social justice.

We invite you to browse through and learn about our degree programs, students’ research, and meet our faculty. The members of the Social Sciences Division look forward to working and learning with you!
