Integrated Social Sciences Division (ISSD)

The Integrated Social Sciences Division (ISSD) provides a multidisciplinary approach to understanding and applying the social sciences in the contemporary society. ISSD students will explore the interactions among the civil society, finance, public policy, development, and technology. The program is well-suited for students who wish to acquire a well-balanced, multidisciplinary perspective, which blends the practical and theoretical frameworks necessary for becoming tomorrow’s leaders of society. ISSD's faculty members are drawn from diverse disciplines, including philosophy, politics, economics, sociology, theology, law, statistics, mathematics, quantitative analysis, material science, engineering, biochemistry, biology, environmental engineering, information & industrial engineering, social welfare, public health and public policy.


The curriculum of the Justice and Civil Leadership major encompasses both a comprehensive pre-law program and an interdisciplinary program in philosophy, politics and economics. First, the curriculum will require students to develop familiarity with relevant fields in both the humanities and social sciences with respect to different methodologies and making value judgments. Second, in order to prepare students to address complex and diverse societal issues in a variety of different professional areas, students will take courses that enable them to acquire the skills of critical thinking and normative evaluation necessary to understand and analyze these multifaceted issues. Third, the curriculum’s diversity with respect to both subjects and methods will enable students to exercise their independent judgement in framing research projects and evaluating methods, concepts and arguments relating to different research areas.
