About

The Bachelor in Critical Social Thought from Mount Holyoke College is designed for students who want to interrogate cultural and social phenomena outside the confines of traditional disciplinary boundaries with the goal of analyzing relations of power embedded in knowledge production and social life.

Overview

Students apply critical thought from a wide array of intellectual traditions, including:

  • critical ethnic studies, 
  • performance studies,
  •  disability studies,
  •  the history of science,
  • psychoanalysis,
  •  Marxism,
  •  the Frankfurt School,
  •  critical race studies, 
  • queer theory, 
  • feminist theory, 
  • postcolonial theory. 

Critical Social Thought puts less emphasis on the social, cultural, or scientific objects under study than on its distinctive, interdisciplinary methodology in which student-driven inquiry and research combines theoretical and social critique with a concern for addressing pressing social issues.

Each student who gets a Bachelor in Critical Social Thought from Mount Holyoke College shall meet with the program chair and the director of advising, preferably during the first semester of her sophomore year, to discuss her intellectual interests and to select two advisors from the critical social thought faculty who will help her sculpt hercurriculum around a central question of her choice.
