Prospective Students

Consider the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.

34,000 Humanities and Social Sciences alumni can’t be wrong. Our college helps you explore the big ideas and to ask the big questions. We’ll help you prepare to live your dreams, make a difference, participate in the big wide world.

You’ll be among some like-minded spirits. Your assumptions will be challenged. You’ll stretch and grow. You’ll work hard. You’ll fall down, and learn something in the process of getting up again. And you’ll find the journey extremely rewarding.
