College 10's Partnership with the Division of Social Sciences

College Ten's Partnership with Division of Social Sciences

One of the relatively unique features of College Ten is that its academic administration is affiliated with the Division of Social Sciences.  This does not mean, however, that College Ten students are only supposed to be majors in the social sciences. We welcome all majors. Indeed, College Ten students come from all majors in Humanities, Arts, Natural Sciences, and Engineering, in addition to Social Sciences. Their shared interest is in learning about the world, community, and social justice.

All students can benefit from College Ten's partnership with the UCSC Social Sciences Division. In a comprehensive analysis of more than 200 top public universities, Social Sciences at UC Santa Cruz ranked first in the nation in research quality. Thus, College Ten students will have opportunities to explore social justice and community with distinguished faculty from a range of disciplines including Anthropology, Community Studies, Economics, Education, Environmental Studies, Latin American and Latino Studies, Politics, Psychology, and Sociology. Special opportunities for students will include assisting faculty in their research for course credit. Also, students will be able to meet with faculty in small group events as part of College Ten student programs.
