Social Sciences

If you are intrigued by the behaviour and interactions of human beings, both as individuals and in groups, consider a program in the Social Sciences.

Topics range from psychological drives and motivations to economic growth and development; from political practices and institutions to patterns of family interaction; from the effect of human interventions on the environment to the roles of gender in different societies. Social Science courses are offered in Economics, Environmental Studies, Geography, Global Development Studies, Health Studies, Political Studies, Psychology, Sociology, and Gender Studies. You will be encouraged to approach human beings and human life with curiosity and an open mind, to investigate issues with careful research, and to draw conclusions based on empirical evidence.
