Why study social sciences at SLU?

Future teachers, public health advocates, social workers, politicians, lawyers and law enforcement have one value in common: the desire to make the world a better place on a daily basis. SLU's social science programs will give you the tools you need to give a voice to the voiceless; to tackle health outbreaks among vulnerable communities; and to keep individuals, particularly those at risk from their circumstances, on the right side of the law.

As the No.3 university in the nation for community service, SLU extends opportunities throughout the year for you to engage in outreach and assist vulnerable populations.
