Social Sciences Department

The Department of Social Sciences at Hawai'i Pacific University houses undegraduate academic programs in anthropology, geography, international relations, international studies, justice administration, political science, social science, and sociology; and an interdisciplinary graduate program in global leadership and sustaintable development. Faculty and students combine their intellectual curiosity to foster greater awareness of a range of socio-cultural, political, and global issues, and in turn help to educate global citizens ready to make a difference in the world.


The Department of Social Sciences is hosting a roundtable discussion with a group of young professionals from Australia, China, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Timor-Leste, on the topic of “The Transpacific Network of Multilateral Security and Economic Relationships.” The visitors are in the U.S. as part of the U.S. Department of State International Visitors Leadership Program, and co-sponsored by the Honolulu-based Pacific and Asian Affairs Council.  Click title for a flyer, and RSVP to Dr. Carlos Juarez at 566-2493 or cjuarez@hpu.edu2:05 p.m.-3:30 p.m., MP-243 (1188 Fort St.).
