Social Sciences

Social sciences provide an analytical approach to society’s problems. As a result, faculty and students in the social sciences often focus on issues that are polemic — racism, international conflict and war, ethnic strife, poverty. The goal, however, is to take an objective, empirical approach to these issues that can generate genuine passion — not an easy task.

Social scientists strive to rise above the level of the heated dining-room table debate. Instead of saying, “it should” or “they ought” the social scientist asks why, what or how?
