The Master of Social Science degree was founded over 40 years ago and now resides in Maxwell’s Executive Education Program. It utilizes interdisciplinary comparative analyses to explore the world’s broad social science problems. The curriculum pays special attention to the issues of international studies, the foundations and development of major societies and questions involving war and society in the world’s major cultural areas.

Major Requirements

The innovative program is accomplished by two two-week residencies, distance learning and independent study with faculty members from across the Maxwell School, who work together to ensure an interdisciplinary approach to learning.

This unique arrangement allows MSSc students to earn a master’s degree while concurrently maintaining their professional careers as NGO officials, teachers, military personnel, government officers, journalists, and corporate executives involved in international business. Study for the Master of Social Science degree can begin at any time of the year.
