    School of Social Sciences & Education

    We teach students to teach others. To solve conflicts. To investigate. To dive deep on important aspects of interpersonal relationships. Critical thinking, logical reasoning, oral and written communication skills, leadership and service skills, intercultural competencies, and the ability to work in diverse groups are all taught, too.

    In the School of Social Sciences & Education, we mix liberal-arts studies with pre-professional preparation. And that creates well-rounded graduates ready for the real world.
