Division of the Social Sciences

Even prior to the Division's official founding in November 1930, achievements in the social sciences were hallmarks of the University of Chicago's earliest history. 

The Division of the Social Sciences is an interconnected community of scholars. Those connections extend across disciplines; encompass faculty, students, alumni; and extend to the community of social scientists across the University of Chicago. We sustain and are enriched by activities—from faculty research collaboration to graduate education and undergraduate teaching—that naturally reach across divisions and schools. These connections feed our scholarly and pedagogical work and provide routes for our research to have influence on real-world challenges.
