About HSS

Caltech's Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) is dedicated to exploring the human experience—from the evolution of culture and institutions to social, political, and economic behavior, from the products of the imagination to the conceptual underpinnings of science. Committed to excellent teaching and rigorous analysis, HSS scholars apply cutting-edge methodologies to deepen knowledge and understanding of our world.
