At Case Western Reserve University, your study of the humanities, social sciences and arts is defined by rich learning experiences that put you on the path to reaching your goals.

Classes packed with thought-provoking discussions on critical topics, like:

  • ANTH 389: Study forensic anthropology to use theories of biology to answer legal questions and explore issues of human rights
  • ARTS 300: Examine how movements like Black Lives Matter and #MeToo alter conceptions about the role of art in society
  • HSTY 152: Trace the origins and significance of technological developments in American history, with an emphasis on their social, cultural, political and economic significance.

Real-world learning that lets you put theories into action like:

  • Study film in Madrid; theater in London and medical anthropology in Cape Town
  • Research topics like “Defining gender: Why some people only accept the binary”; “Impacts of group dynamics on political decision making”; or “Structural issues, policy changes and ethical considerations in nursing homes during COVID-19”
  • Land an internship with the Cuyahoga Prosecutor's Office, Homicide Division; Cleveland Museum of Art; American Historical Association; National Public Radio or just about anywhere that piques your interest.

Student organizations where you lead initiatives that make a difference on campus and beyond, in groups like:

  • Art Forward (monthly art projects with youth at the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Detention Center) 
  • Model United Nations
  • Sustained Dialogue (diverse groups discuss campus, local and national issues of concern)
