In this program, you will create and follow a program of study coordinated by the departments of economics; geography; history; political science; psychology; sociology, anthropology and criminal justice; and women’s studies. The program provides an opportunity to develop and publish a thesis as you gain familiarity with research, theoretical advances, applications and methodological approaches related to current topics in social science. Faculty members work closely with you to prepare your thesis or a final portfolio of your work.
You have the freedom to build a degree tailored to your interests. Choose from two tracks of study in the program. Build your foundation in the social sciences with courses from the perspectives of the geographer, the economist and the historian, along with course work on East Asian security issues, American politics and developmental human learning. Then choose one track of specialization — either General or Global Analysis – and one discipline within that track.
