The Aim of Education

Social science literally refers to a category of sciences that try to understand society in a scientific manner. Accordingly, the college, as its main objectives, aims to nurture students' abilities to systematically study and understand what constitutes society, how social institutions interact, and how they generate various patterns of social phenomena. The College of Social Sciences consists of the following majors: Political Science and Diplomacy, Public Administration, Economics, Library and Information Science, Sociology, Social Welfare, Psychology, Communication&Media.
As institutions of research and education in both basic and applied disciplines, these programs are devoted to training creative and professional women intellectuals for society. In response to growing emphasis on multi-disciplinary learning, the college encourages students to take double majors to become women leaders who are adequately equipped with not only specialty but also diversity.
