Department of Humanities and Social Sciences in the Professions

About the Department

The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences in the Professions includes disciplines and modes of inquiry that provide strong intellectual and cultural foundations for the study of the professions in modern life. Previously, the programs and faculty that now comprise this department were scattered throughout the school. With the support of the school's faculty and administration, we are now one unit better able to achieve our dual purpose of providing disciplinary and research course work for students in other parts of the school, while also preparing students within our own departments for positions leading to research and teaching in colleges and universities, in government, and in other service organizations both nationally and internationally.
