Social scientists study human behavior—its cultural, social, political, economic, and expressive characteristics and determinants. They also seek solutions to the nation’s and the world’s most serious problems—social problems that require human, not technical solutions. Students deal with real issues: creating a safer world, increasing prosperity, improving health, educating nations, promoting fairness, reducing discrimination, and protecting the environment.
"A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." ~ Margaret Mead
