The School of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSS) maintains programs that provide the knowledge, perspective, and practical skills needed to pursue excellence in the fields of human behavior, social science, government, and history.

Our curricula merge theory with practice to create high-impact programs with resonance. We support subject exploration through research, classroom activities, and community engagement. In addition, each major incorporates opportunities to study outside of the classroom such as internships and study abroad opportunities.

Our mission is to educate, inspire, and motivate students to become distinguished voices in their respective fields and communities.
