Welcome to the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Nova Southeastern University! We are excited to be celebrating our 25th year anniversary.
SHSS has distinguished itself nationally and internationally through its academic programs and community engagement initiatives. We are committed to NSU's Vision 2020, learner-centeredness, inclusive excellence, and reflective practice.
It is exciting that we have come together with colleagues, students, and alumni from the Center for Psychological Studies (CPS), the Mailman Segal Center for Human Development (MSC), and the Institute for the Study of Human Service, Health and Justice (HSHJ). By partnering with HSHJ, CPS, MSC, and other sister units, there will be more collaborative opportunities for cross-disciplinary learning, research and practice. Understanding and betterment of human social relations is a central theme of our multidisciplinary, multi-professional, and multicultural endeavors. Our vigorous curricula have deep interdisciplinary roots. Our cutting-edge programs employ a variety of innovative technologies. In the course of addressing human challenges and social issues as an inclusive learning community, we are building up a creative bridge between theory, research, and practice drawn from different social sciences, humanities, and helping professions. We are looking forward to working with you closely on-campus, online, and in the communities.
Good luck with your graduate studies and promising careers!
