Since 1888, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences has played an instrumental role in teaching independent and critical thinking, analytical and knowledge-building skills and the ability to pose meaningful questions that advance understanding and knowledge. Students in our college confront the great questions and controversies, learn about the forces that have shaped our world, and to develop the skills to tackle its most pressing challenges. Our graduates are creative problem-solvers with a passion for making a difference. The education they receive here prepares them to address the problems of today and to succeed wherever their career path takes them tomorrow.
College of Humanities and Social Science faculty members are bright lights in their disciplines, seeking answers through research and helping their students find their own.
Students are the reason behind all the efforts the College of Humanities and Social Sciences puts forward to make it a leading liberal arts institution. Many students begin their university career in disciplines that not part of CHaSS; however, more than half of CHaSS majors have transferred from other colleges. Students recognize that, in the end, the liberal arts provide problem-solving, analysis and writing skills so necessary in our modern world.
Included here are items for use by the college’s faculty members. Link to information regarding promotion and tenure, or download forms to nominate an individual for a university award. Also here are suggestions for grants and other funding sources.
CHaSS offers advising specialists in all disciplines. Here are just a few examples: history, English, English teaching, political science; social work, French, philosophy and journalism. Also available are representatives of the ROTC programs for the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force.
Many students and alumni don't realize that tuition and state funding doesn't cover the full cost of operating the college. The difference is made by private donors who believe in the mission of CHaSS and support it through gifts for scholarships, professorships, and programs. Donating to CHaSS can take a student's education from good to great.
CHaSS now has a storefront. Celebrate the upcoming fall semester with warm jackets, hats, gloves and some very cool notebooks, all CHaSS-branded.
