Social Sciences, Business, and Global Studies
In the School of Social Sciences, Business, and Global Studies, students examine how people around the world organize and communicate in social systems. Consider the use of power, the creation of wealth, the distribution of the world’s resources, the diversity of cultures, and stewardship of the environment. They learn about managing conflict and promoting peace.
Students use global challenges such as war, poverty, and human rights as context for the application of theory in practice. They share an interest in current events and often pursue careers in business, law, government, the military, and community development.
