The College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) at George Mason University is the home of the University’s liberal education curriculum. This curriculum focuses on students’ intellectual and personal development, providing them with broad knowledge of the wider world (e.g. science, culture, and society) and subject matter expertise through in-depth study in a specific area of interest.
Employers agree that those who succeed academically within their field, but also possess a broad knowledge base in other areas, are more desirable employees. The education CHSS provides for all students, helps them develop necessary transferable skills such as communication, analytical and problem-solving skills, and a demonstrated ability to apply knowledge and skills in real-world settings.
CHSS drives our community forward in advancing cutting-edge research, impactful service, and critical competencies for today's global and knowledge-based economy. A CHSS education is essential in preparing Mason students to navigate complexity, diversity, and change.
