College of Social Sciences

Since 1911, the University has grown to impact every facet of our region. As our rapidly-changing social landscape continues to pose new challenges, a foundation in the social sciences creates a greater capacity to find creative solutions at a time when our complex world calls for it most. From the study of historical, political, social and cultural issues, to projections for our future, the College of Social Sciences’ programs are designed to develop essential skills necessary to provide leadership for the future and change our world. The college seeks to instill a concern for human values and civic responsibility, and its students graduate to become the next generation of judges, city planners, elected officials, researchers, business people, teachers, lawyers, law enforcement officers and government officials.

Mock Trial 

Fresno State's award-winning Mock Trial team engages in (and wins!) fast-paced, suspenseful and exhilarating competitions with major universities throughout the United States. Team members present persuasive and professional arguments, thinking quickly on their feet as the trial develops. Gifts will support the team's extensive travel schedule.

Dean's Circle

The World is our Classroom. Nowhere on campus is that more true than in COSS. Gifts to the College of Social Sciences Dean's Circle supports student engagement and learning that happens outside of the classroom - internships, research, conferences, community leadership and other important experiences that will transform their education and experience.

Grandad Archeological Field School

Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Anthropology Department's archaeological field school at the Granddad site in the Sierra Foothills. This village site has been occupied for over 9,000 years and thus provides a rich learning environment for students. Local Native Americans have had the opportunity to learn about archeology while also providing students with knowledge about indigenous cultural heritage and values. This perspective is crucial to shaping the next generation of archeologists. Thus, the field school not only involves digging and screening for artifacts, but also while learning local, traditional Native American culture, songs, storytelling and games. Your support will help this valuable experience continue to be available for our students.
