The study of modern social science involves a great deal of investigatory work, and in the School of Social Sciences, investigation takes the form of research.
Taking a multi-disciplinary approach, our faculty and students have achieved research excellence in areas concerned with population, migration and diversity; national, international and global issues; culture and society; games, decisions and mathematical behavioral science; and cognitive and brain sciences.
Their innovative findings are frequently published in top tier academic journals and their expertise is regularly sought by national media for comments on a wide range of issues.
In the classroom and through formalized research, our students work alongside faculty experts pursuing a rigorous academic curriculum within the School’s highly ranked anthropology, Chicano/Latino studies, cognitive sciences, economics, international studies, logic and philosophy of science, political science, and sociology programs. Whether the focus is on studying how changes in employee wages can affect the national economy to studying ways of advancing the global spread of democracy, their work impacts the world around us.
