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 Science, Technology, and Policy (STP) major combines concepts and methods from the humanities and social sciences to provide a framework through which to analyze the complex interactions between science, technology, and society. The STP is designed to empower students to frame and forecast science and technology in the service of society. It prepares students to understand both the technical and social dimensions of science and technology, giving them a language to frame and apply critical interdisciplinary thinking, research, and communication skills in national and international policy issues of government, private and public sectors including NGOs, in order to become leaders in our increasingly technology-driven society.
