CHSS Experience Courses

CHSS courses provide you with the connections and the opportunities that matter, supporting your transition into our community of scholars, building your leadership skills, and preparing you for what is next. And, as a student of the Humanities and Social Sciences, your CHSS course will help you gain further insight into how your major shows up in and shapes the world. 

In a CHSS course, you will: 

  • Learn in small, discussion-based cohorts 
  • Connect with CHSS faculty, staff, and alumni on topics pertinent to your interests 
  • Gain tools and access to resources for goal-setting and decision-making 
  • Collaborate with peers experiencing the same challenges and successes  
  • Focus on your personal, academic, and career choices as you navigate your own pathway to success  

If you are a first-year student, explore your options in either CHSS 100 or CHSS 101, our Learning Community course for freshmen. Incoming transfer student? We'd love to see you in CHSS 300, a course designed specifically to facilitate your continued educational journey at Mason. Interested in supporting fellow undergraduates and CHSS faculty as a teaching assistant? Have a look at CHSS 490, our Undergraduate Teaching Practicum course.
