The College of Social Sciences, Commerce, and Education (SSCE) has a diverse range of majors in the Puri School of Business and departments of education; kinesiology; and political science, sociology, and criminal justice. We also offer a degree in Social Science, which may be a desirable alternative to one of the departmental programs, especially for those students who plan careers in secondary teaching, social work, governmental administration or foreign commerce. Through the liberal arts tradition, students will develop broad-based critical-thinking and problem-solving skills which are of lasting significance and apply to an extended range of current and future careers. Students will also develop the specific skills that they need to progress in their chosen career along with the opportunity to apply those skills through service learning opportunities, clinical experiences, internships, and research projects.
Our faculty members bring experience in their respective fields as well as a deep knowledge of their field of study to the classroom. Although active in research and community service, their primary focus is teaching and providing a customized path for students to accomplish their career goals and flourish as an intellectually curious citizen.
