Welcome to Shawnee State University's Department of Social Sciences. Social Sciences is a diverse department incorporating anthropology, economics, geography, history, political sciences, psychology, and sociology. It is also the fastest growing department on campus, in terms of the number of majors. It's a department where you will surely fit in, but also one where you can certainly stand out.
Social sciences faculty have expertise in a variety of areas, from the development of neural pathways to Middle Eastern culture and politics. They are also eager to help students succeed in their education. Our faculty contribute countless hours to advising and assisting students with coursework, progress towards degrees, preparation for graduate school, and employment opportunities. We define our success by how successful our students are at Shawnee, and in life.
And our students have been successful! Graduates of Shawnee's social sciences programs have gone on to graduate programs, both Master's and doctoral, law school, and medical school. They have been employed in a variety of fields including politics, business, mental health, social services, education, and health care.
