Dean Hastings is proud that every student who studies and graduates from Mount Ida College passes through the doors of the School of Social Sciences and Humanities.

“I recognize that we are the heart of the college for very good reasons. Students in our majors, and those who take our classes to satisfy academic core course requirements, gain the important skills associated with a liberal arts education.”

Included in the skill sets are advanced abilities in written and oral communication, critical thinking, and creativity. Hastings emphasizes that “these are the very characteristics that employers seek in the contemporary job market. The classes in the School of Social Sciences and Humanities classes not only prepare our students for better careers, they prepare our students for a better life.”
