Course DescriptionThe College of Humanities and Social Sciences affirms the humanities and social sciences as the core of liberal arts
education and the foundation of professional preparation. The College is committed to excellence in instruction, research, and scholarship. Its disciplines promote extensive interaction between faculty and students, attention to individual development of critical and creative thinking, the building of interdisciplinary communities through partnerships both internal and external, and the development of new knowledge through research and creative activities. The College plays an essential role in Rowan's mission: to educate students who remain lifelong learners and ethically responsible citizens, sensitive to cultural and ethnic diversity and engaged in advancing our global society.
The College provides General Education courses in the humanities and the social sciences. These courses give our students a breadth of knowledge while developing skills in oral and written communication, critical thinking, and research. Our students go on to acquire a depth of knowledge in one of the major programs in the College. Expert faculty who have distinguished themselves in their disciplines through research, scholarship, and other professional activities help our students learn both in the classroom, through engaging lectures and interactive pedagogical approaches, and outside of the classroom, through research projects. Our faculty care genuinely about the success of our students and make themselves available for advising, mentoring, and academic discussion. Students interested in pursuing a law degree may work with the College's pre-law advisor and become involved with the Pre-Law Society to prepare for application to law school.
The College offers several Interdisciplinary majors: Africana Studies, American Studies, Environmental Studies, Liberal Studies: Humanities and Social Sciences and Liberal Studies: Math & Sciences. The College also offers minors in most of the disciplines, and concentrations in several disciplines such as African American Studies, Asian Studies, Cartography and Geography Information Systems, Ethics, Geoscience, International Studies, Planning, Urban Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies. The minors and concentrations, along with free elective courses, allow students to complete their major area of study in ways that are particularly appropriate to their individual interests and career goals.
