Clarkson’s Humanities and Social Science department provides broader perspectives, external fields and technology competencies to all students through our dedicated faculty. Our department offers a small class size and provides excellent preparation for a career, professional study (law, medicine or health sciences) or graduate study and research.
As a department we are unique as we house multiple disciplines under one roof with 23 teacher-scholars from across the liberal arts world who love what they do. We have focused programs in American studies, history and political science with flexible programs in interdisciplinary humanities, social sciences and liberal studies.
Our students participate in conferences and get the chance to show their work to their peers and others around the community. Providing you the opportunity to show off your work while still in school helps prepare you for a job after graduation.
