Why Social Science Matters
Social Science equips us with the knowledge to understand people better, which is imperative if we want to positively engage today’s society. Whether it is criminal justice, law, or psychology, the world needs Godly men and women who understand these core issues while also incorporating a Biblical approach. “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” Romans 13:1.

Our mission is to encourage and recognize superior scholarship in social science disciplines and to foster cooperation and social service among its members. Pi Gamma Mu serves the various social science disciplines which seek to understand and explain human behavior and social relationships as well as their related problems and issues.
