​​​​The programs offered through the College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences (CHSBS) will help students to develop the critical thinking, research, analytical, and communication skills that employers seek. We offer internships, creative endeavors, applied research opportunities, and international and multicultural activities to enhance classroom experiences.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

We strive to help students better understand people and communities at regional, national and international levels and also believe that students need to understand the past to make a difference in the future. 

CHSBS provides a significant portion of the liberal arts education in which all students must participate in order to graduate. Click here to learn more about what it means to be a student in CHSBS:
