About

The Social Sciences program at Northwestern University majors examine humankind—its basic nature and evolution around the world and over time, its social structures and issues, and its politics and political institutions.

Overview

Through interdisciplinary study that employs a full range of the research methods and comparative perspectives in the social sciences, students gain essential skills in critical reasoning and analysis, creative problem solving, writing, and social awareness.
