The Department of History, Philosophy and Social Sciences (HPSS) gives students the academic foundation necessary for an enlightened view of today's rapidly changing world.

The skills and knowledge learned from our dedicated faculty are invaluable not only in the pursuit of graduate degrees and careers but also in shaping one's individual perspective on history, politics, psychology, the social sciences and society at large.

Majors in HPSS think critically on a broad range of issues.  Our graduates are prepared to constructively engage with the world around them, drawing on their understanding of how our perceptions of the past, present, and future are fundamentally linked in shaping our experiences.
