Arts & Social Sciences
In our Social Sciences programs, you will learn to think critically and argue persuasively. You will gain important job-related skills in methods of research, and data analysis and interpretation. You will understand how cultural, economic, political, psychological, and social phenomena influence human behaviour. You will gain the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to live an informed life, and to make your communities and the world a better place. Our mission is the promotion of learning and the protection of knowledge, the cultivation of free thought, independent academic research and the support of the creative spirit of human society. The Faculty´s main objective is to develop expertise in those aspects of the social sciences which directly or indirectly relate to the public or to the economic and cultural life of society.
