Welcome to our website!


Greetings and Selamat Datang (Welcome) to the website of the School of Social Sciences of Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM).

Established in 1970, the main mission of the school is the advancement of knowledge to understand and facilitate desirable social transformation, as well as to study and address the rapid and profound social changes in contemporary society. We achieve this mission through an extensive programme of research, publication, teaching and intellectual collaboration.

The school offers Bachelor-degree programmes in the fields of Anthropology and Sociology, Economics, Political Science, Development Planning and Management and Social Work. We also offer postgraduate degrees in Economics, Public Administration, Social Work and Islamic Development and Management. The school plays an important role in bringing together the primary disciplines involved in the analysis of human and societal relationships. In so doing the school promotes the critical analysis and understanding of issues related to psychosocial problems, culture and cultural diversity, the interaction of social and physical environments, social development, and economic and political structures.
