Discovering Effective Solutions for an Increasingly Complex Society

For as demanding as it can be to find technological solutions to current problems, addressing society’s challenges can be far more complex. For starters, environmental, economic, and political issues must be considered. The programs offered by WPI’s Social Science & Policy Studies (SSPS) department are dedicated to identifying ways to effectively respond to these challenges.

Students may choose from a wide range of academic majors and minors in SSPS.
