Social Sciences

Undergraduate Scholarships and Support

We offer undergraduate majors in anthropology, history, law and society, and sustainability science and society. We encourage students to get involved in a research project in their field, participate in study abroad programs, and travel to conferences and meetings. Donations in support of undergraduate education helps more students experience these opportunities.
