College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities



Welcome to the College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, fondly known as CSSAH.

CSSAH is a multidisciplinary college that produces Exceptional Artists, Dynamic Leaders and Extraordinary Social Activists.  Our programs connect students to the world with an array of learning opportunities including research, internships, co-op, service learning, online instruction, and experiential scholarship.

CSSAH students examine enduring and systemic questions about human nature and social behavior. They study the organization and functions of government, the interrelations of global societies, and diverse political systems.

We are the Keepers of the Culture, the Protectors of Freedom, and the Ambassadors of Creativity.

Our students are challenged to examine how the world is shaped by diverse values, histories and cultures.
