In 2013, Professor James Tang, Dean, School of Social Sciences, declared that, “the world needs a new generation of Social Science graduates to tackle its complexities.” Our interdisciplinary PPS majors - Psychology, Political Science, and Sociology, plus a final year integrative capstone seminar had produced an exciting corps of Social Science graduates - well-rounded, insightful, and versatile in viewing and tackling problems from multiple perspectives, and capable of taking on leadership position in a diverse field of careers.
In 2016, we raised the bar with a new signature major that combines the synergistic power of three critical disciplines: Politics, Law, and Economics (PLE). The PLE major provides for a deeper understanding of global political perspectives, economic transformations, and the legal frameworks that these changes demand. Graduates develop a higher level of strategic thinking, innovative problem-solving skills and imaginative leadership quality.
PLE is for those who want to become the new leaders, thinkers, and doers of tomorrow.
