This fall, the divisions of Social Sciences and Humanities are teaming up to offer a new Diploma in Applied Social Sciences and Humanities, known as DASSH. The program was created to provide students interested in social sciences or humanities with an applied foundation that would enable them to demonstrate to prospective employers the practical value of the skills and knowledge gained through their course of study.
DASSH students acquire technical skills through courses in digital media, software use, and financial literacy, including working with an external client on an applied project in the final semester.
The DASSH program combines theoretical, experiential, and technical learning with the core courses in the areas of Social Sciences and Humanities, which are elements for success in a variety of career areas including business, law, journalism, government, communications, public administration, the non-profit sector, and information technology and management, or in the continued pursuit of higher education.
We are proud to make this new program available in the fall of 2018 to all of our students interested in Social Sciences and Humanities. This program will help students gain experience in these exciting fields.
