Academic Degrees in the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences

The School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) is composed of five departments, each of which offers one or more programs at the Bachelors of Science [B.S.], Masters of Science or Fine Arts [M.S. or M.F.A], or Doctoral [Ph.D.] levels. In addition HASS participates in dual degree programs with departments in Engineering, Management, and Science.

Each of these programs draws heavily upon Rensselaer’s technological resources to rethink the nature of humanities, arts and social sciences and to apply work in these areas to achieving "the common purposes of life" and meeting the grand challenges of 21st century life..
