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. When you support social sciences and humanities through funding higher education, your gift continues to give for generations to come.

Emerging from a vibrant liberal arts core, our collaborative learning environment inspires individual, social, cultural, creative, and scientific exploration. Students devise and apply innovative solutions, embrace divergent worldviews, consider the ethical implications of their actions, and communicate effectively in their professional, public, and personal lives. Together, students, faculty and staff generate knowledge, pursue research and foster life-long learning to contribute to the well-being of communities from local to global.
