Welcome to the College of Humanities & Social Sciences at Southern Utah University. We are dedicated to elevating the cultural and intellectual community of faculty, staff, students, and neighbors in southern Utah. Leadership in the college centers around our faculty and staff, who are at the heart of all we do. Our mission is supported by six academic departments who house the following majors: communication, criminal justice, English, psychology, anthropology, history, languages, philosophy, political science, and sociology. Our faculty teach courses that serve as the educational foundation for every Southern Utah University student. In doing so, we ensure that all students on our campus develop the skills that are critical to long term career success and a meaningful life.
