Purdue University Northwest offers more than 30 degree programs in the humanities, education and social sciences. Choosing majors in the Humanities, Education and Social Sciences (CHESS) will lead you to a broader understanding of human culture and society. You will be prepared for a wide variety of careers and a life characterized by creativity, community engagement, and personal fulfillment. As a CHESS student you will work with outstanding teachers who are also engaged in research and scholarship in their fields.

As an undergraduate or graduate student you have the opportunity to work with faculty in such wide-ranging projects as Gender and Politics in Ancient Italy, Mapping of Chinese Religions, Environmental Science Writing, the Psychology of Climate Change, Apocalyptic Film Heroes, and Writing in Virtual Worlds.

The College is home to the Institute for Social and Policy Research, the International Film Series, and the Purdue Theater Company – each offering unique educational opportunities to every enrolled student. You can immerse yourself in other cultures through our Study Abroad programs. Every spring the College hosts the Clement S. Stacy Undergraduate Research Conference where students from across the Midwest present the results of their research in the humanities and social sciences.

Our graduates work for the Youth Services Bureau, numerous school districts as teachers, La Porte County Circuit Court, Keyes Counseling, Westville Little School/Pre-School, Chicago Fire Soccer Club, and We Create Media.
