The College of Humanities and Social Sciences is Western’s largest academic unit, comprised of two divisions: social and behavioral sciences, and humanities. Students within this college are majoring in studies like Communication Sciences and Disorders, Modern and Classical Languages, Psychology, History and more! We provide students with a culturally inclusive education to best prepare them to study and build relationships within society.
