The Honors in the Social Sciences (HSS) program encourages students to gain an in-depth understanding of social science traditions and methods. It offers ambitious students a rigorous program of study emphasizing theories and methods from several social scientific disciplines, as well as the opportunity to work closely with HSS faculty to develop unique multi-disciplinary honors projects.
It is designed to parallel Honors in the Humanities and Honors in Mathematical and Science programs. Students in the program complete a total of 21 credits, most of which satisfy General Education and/or departmental major and minor requirements. Students who complete all of the program requirements will have HSS recorded as a minor on their Queens College transcripts.
