Mission

The School of Humanities and Social Sciences encourages students to appreciate the richness of human experience. Its curriculum seeks to integrate academic excellence with Christian commitment, providing a general education as well as in-depth knowledge in particular majors. The goal of the School’s courses is to foster an understanding of human behavior, values, and achievements that will serve students throughout their lives. The insights and skills that come from these courses also prepare students for meaningful careers and for graduate school or professional studies.

Objectives

In serving both the general and specific educational needs of Mississippi College students, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences is guided by four major objectives:

  1. To provide a broad foundation of learning in the humanities and social sciences by promoting critical thinking, problem solving, written and oral communication, and research skills.
  2. To provide in-depth knowledge of social and political behavior, historical events, linguistic forms, and literary achievement, so that students will better understand others, themselves, their place in a changing world, and the value of disciplined inquiry.
  3. To prepare students to excel in professional and graduate schools and ultimately in their careers.
  4. To provide a learning and research environment that will enable students and faculty to achieve their fullest potential.
