Internships at companies and organizations across the U.S.


First School of Social Transformation in the nation


Students in SST are eligible for 19 unique undergraduate and graduate scholarships that annually award more than $100,000.

Our Areas of Study

No matter your major, you’ll study social justice with award-winning faculty from our five interdisciplinary fields. You will learn the historical, cultural and social forces that made our society what it is today and get the training you need to be a champion for equality and succeed in any career.







This report compares career outcomes and job satisfaction of humanities majors to other fields including social sciences, education, physical sciences and the arts. I think the data dispels the myth that many of our fields in SST do not prepare students for careers. Our transdiciplinarity is a plus.
