The Foundation of a Liberal Arts Education at The Citadel
The School of Humanities & Social Sciences (SHSS) is the foundation of a liberal arts education at The Citadel. It teaches students the fundamental principles of major fields of knowledge. It develops their appreciation of the diversity of the human experience. It cultivates their ability to conduct research, to think critically, to draw logical conclusions, and to express their thoughts effectively. It encourages them to welcome, and learn from, conversations with people who use the same process to arrive at conclusions different from their own.
