Welcome to the Department of Social Sciences and Liberal Arts (SSLA)! Our four year undergraduate program is designed to cover a range of disciplines in the Social Sciences and Humanities, while maintaining the focus of a degree that provides a competitive advantage to our graduates. Our students cover a core curriculum in the first two years comprising of courses in the fields of Social and Cultural Anthropology, Philosophy, Sociology, Urban Studies, English Writing and Rhetoric, History and two semesters of a Foreign Language. In their third and fourth years, they choose a Major from Media and Culture, Political Science, Psychology, and History. Starting in 2023, they also have the option of doing a Minor in either Urban Studies or World Literature. In their last year, students can choose to do a thesis project, where each student designs and carries out their own research.
