The degree programs offered in the Social Sciences Department provide education, scholarship, and training in the social sciences through a strong foundation in the liberal arts that prepares students for successful careers and continued education in graduate school.
The social sciences department at Robert Morris University offers on-ground degree programs in Criminal Justice, History, Political Science, Psychology, Social Science, and Sociology, and an on-line program in Criminal Justice.
The on-ground programs can also be completed in the Early Admission to Law School Program.
The department also guides students seeking to meet the necessary requirements for teacher certification in Social Studies. A post-baccalaureate, certification-only program in Social Studies is also available for students who have already earned a bachelor's degree. Students interested in learning about specific program requirements for teacher certification should visit the Department of Education.
The social sciences department is the home of the Oral History Center.
