Dear Students,
A very warm welcome to SMU’s School of Social Sciences (SOSS).
The start of the academic year is always an exciting time for the School as we prepare to receive a new cohort of students. 
At SOSS, we are dedicated in connecting your academic learning to real world experiences. Our majors – Political Science, Psychology and Sociology (PPS) – offers you the breadth of a multidisciplinary foundation and the opportunity to specialize in one of the three disciplines, while Politics, Law and Economics (PLE) major offers a more integrative approach in linking the three fields and prepare you for multiple career paths. We also offer three challenging second majors – Arts & Culture Management, Public Policy & Public Management and Global Asia for students who are interested.
Given these boundless opportunities for intellectual exploration and holistic development in the School and in the University, your life in SMU can be as rewarding as you want it to be. With the guidance and support from our faculty, staff and your peers, you will build upon new knowledge and pick up critical skills to gain a better understanding of today’s increasingly complex and volatile world. You will learn to develop a global mind-set, hone your strategic thinking abilities and be equipped with the soft skills of a future leader.
I hope you will take advantage of what SMU has to offer for the next four years of your life with us. Make it even more fulfilling by contributing back to the School, the University and the Community. I believe that your SMU experience and the friendships you are going to build will remain an important part of your lives for many years to come.
