Welcome to The College of Social Science, Performing Arts, and Communication where mankind is our business. From exploring the human psyche via synapses and neurons, to examining the progress of mankind through recorded history, you'll find the opportunities here. You may want to delve into the expression of human emotion through music and theatre or learn how to serve the needs of the underprivileged through social work. You’re in the right place. Will you teach the next generation of young people and set them on a path of hope and possibilities? Will you study politics or economics and set our ship of state on a steady course for the future? This is the place to begin.

Employers across the country want to hire men and women who can work well in teams, build consensus and understanding, think critically and communicate effectively in person and in writing. These are skills that you will develop in this division together with cooperation and compatibility, and showing respect for fellow performers through punctuality and dedication to doing your part.
