​​​​​​Students seeking majors, minors and certificates in t​he programs offered through the College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences (CHSBS) will develop the ability to think critically, communicate clearly, and solve complex problems, skills that are highly prized by employers. 

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. Follow the links below to learn more about our programs.​
