Studying the social sciences will help you build an understanding of human beings, relationships and society. The foundational skills of our curriculum prepare students for a wide-range of career choices.
The Social Sciences blend theory and classroom discussion with hands-on experiences that prepare you to land the perfect job or graduate school opportunity and lead the life of an engaged and ethical person.
Get hands-on, real-world experience and bolster your resume with a paid or for-credit internship. Recent internships include New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, Disney College Program, Entertainment 2 Affect Change, New Hampshire Historical Society, and Putnam Investments.
Social Science graduates are well-prepared to take their next step, with recent job placements including the Department of Homeland Security, New Hampshire State Police, Massachusetts General Hospital, Massachusetts Department of Children and Families, Cambridge Police Department, Roxbury Youthworks Inc., and the New Hampshire Judicial Branch.
Strong academic advising can be critical to your success. So, our faculty, the people who know the curriculum best, advise you on which courses to take and when. Every student is assigned a faculty advisor in their declared major. Your advisor will become your best champion, the one who helps you find research opportunities or internships, teaches your favorite course, and writes your recommendations long after you’ve graduated.
