MS Social Science - The Master of Social Science emphasizes integration of knowledge across and beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries. Courses derive primarily from the social science disciplines, like anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, psychology, and sociology, but may be integrated with other disciplines and programs including English, philosophy, education, health sciences, public affairs, fine arts, and architecture. Students who choose the Master of Social Science program often develop interdisciplinary perspectives in areas like public policy, gender and identity studies, educational reform, cross-cultural studies, or politics. Social Sciences are thus called because they use quantitative (i.e. scientific) as well as qualitative methods to study societies and the issues that affect them, not because physics, chemistry and biology are anti-social sciences, as you may have assumed. This discipline is a broad church that includes sociology, anthropology, social work, education, librarianship and information management, politics and international relations and social policy and administration.
