SoSSIS is Moving
Beginning May 8, all staff and faculty in the School of Social Sciences and International Studies are moving to 378 Allyn Hall. We will not be in our new offices until the start of the fall semester, but we can always be reached at SoSSIS@wright.edu or 937-775-2942. The College of Liberal Arts Dean's office is currently open and will be in their new space, 106 Allyn Hall, starting May 22.
You can prepare for a rewarding career and enjoy a rich liberal arts educational experience in Wright State’s School of Social Sciences and International Studies (SOSSIS).
Choose a degree program from among a wide variety of academic options in the major social sciences and related fields— anthropology, communication, geography, modern languages, political science, and sociology. Or pick one of our interdisciplinary programs, which offer you knowledge from many perspectives—African and African American Studies; Crime and Justice Studies; International Studies; and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
You can also add one of the SOSSIS minors to your existing major. Or, if you have completed your bachelor’s degree, join one of our graduate programs that will help you significantly impact your local community as you serve it—Master of Public Administration or International and Comparative Politics.
Your classes will all provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in a variety of career paths—critical thinking, research, and writing, among others. You will benefit from hands-on learning opportunities, including internships and study abroad options. You’ll also be prepared for graduate school, should you choose to continue your education.
Please contact us at the numbers on the bottom of our web pages or, even better, schedule a visit to our welcoming campus.
