In the Peter S. Kalikow School of Government, Public Policy and International Affairs of HCLAS, students will prepare for their future as informed and responsible citizens of their local, national, and global communities, through engagement with the rigorous intellectual traditions of social scientific inquiry in disciplines such as anthropology, economics, geography, sociology, political science, history, and philosophy. Students will conduct social scientific research to prepare them to think critically and creatively about policy issues and alternatives and, through service learning experiences, may prepare for careers in law, in public service, in governmental agencies and NGO’s, in non-profit organizations, and in public and educational institutions.
