The Wayne D. McMurray School of Humanities and Social Sciences seeks, within the wider mission of Monmouth University, to prepare students for lifelong learning and effective engagement with a changing world. In part, this goal is pursued through general education, which conveys an understanding of human experience and society in the past and throughout the contemporary world.
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. On the undergraduate and graduate levels, strong programs prepare students for successful entry into professions and offer satisfaction of advanced study.
