Division of Social Sciences

Students majoring in the social science at Mount Saint Mary College study why individuals, groups, governments, institutions, tribes, classes, men, women, and children do what they do, and learn how to use this knowledge to achieve positive change. Our courses stress active learning, both inside and outside the classroom. Through co-ops and internships, students develop leadership skills and investigate career options. 

Social science majors graduate with resumes that reflect both academic and real-world learning: the credentials that employers value most. Many become lawyers, diplomats, entrepreneurs, social workers and counselors, financial analysts, organizers, psychologists: the people who shape our societies and our world.
