A Choice of Pathways

All programs in our school provide students with the skills and competencies necessary for successful careers.

About the School

The Wayne D. McMurray School of Humanities and Social Sciences is dedicated to providing a balance of a rich, comprehensive, liberal arts education with the practical concerns of finding gainful employment. Monmouth University remains committed to experiential education and personalized attention that affords students both a breadth and depth of experience.

The humanities give critical insight into aspects of thought, values, and achievement in all times and places. The social sciences contribute an understanding of people living in various cultural and social contexts. Both areas provide a foundation for major courses of study that prepare students for productiveness and responsibility in both their careers and civic life.
