General Information and Strategies for Social Science Careers
WE DO THE SCIENCE OF SOCIETY
Social Scientists focus on some of the most pressing and important issues of our time. We do things a little bit differently, and we make a big difference. That’s for sure.
There are 15 departments and programs that make up the Division of Social Sciences at UC San Diego. Together, we do work that matters, now and for the long term. Founded in 1986 with the goal of increasing interdisciplinary collaboration, our division celebrates diversity of ideas and of peoples.
