Teaching Excellence

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) has a distinguished faculty of more than 400, including recipients of the Pulitzer Prize, Guggenheim Fellowship, and Fulbright Scholar Awards.  Our faculty take great pride in being active scholar-teachers and are instrumental in Mason’s attainment of the R-1 Doctoral University (Highest Research Activity) classification. Research is a vital part of the undergraduate and graduate student experience here. 
As a CHSS student, you will be taught by faculty members who are not only experts in their subject area, but are actively engaged in their fields of study, bringing a real-world perspective to the classroom.
