College of Humanities & Social Sciences at AB
The College of Humanities and Social Sciences is the backbone of Alderson Broaddus University as every student receives instruction from its faculty in the liberal arts. Nearly 70% of the faculty hold terminal degrees, and many have real-world experience in their fields of instruction. Its majors and minors prepare students for real-world experience, as nearly every program requires a practicum, internship, or both. Students also have the opportunity to gather additional professional experience by being part of the staff of Battler Columns, the student-run newspaper. In addition to Battler Columns, any student has the opportunity to submit materials to Influx – an annual publication of AB writers, artists, and photographers. Humanities faculty supervise this publication. The programs in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences prepare students for related employment and graduate school. Many faculty serve as mentors to their students as advisers to campus organizations. In addition, students have the opportunity to study abroad with the Semester in Europe program. This unique international classroom has been offered by AB since 1965.
