About the School of Humanities and Social Sciences

Honoring Liberal Arts Education

The School of Humanities and Social Sciences is the place for great conversation about both urgent and perennial human concerns. By fostering biblically centered liberal arts study, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences seeks to cultivate the wisdom, compassion, and skill that the next generation will need to love God and neighbor faithfully across a wide array of vocations.

Home to degrees in modern languages, English writing, literature, philosophy, sociology, political science, history, and interdisciplinary studies as well as the Torrey Honors College, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences equips students who aspire to a spectrum of careers in law, social work, education, journalism, government, translation and interpretation, the church, urban planning, the arts, and more.
