School of Social Sciences
classroom chairs    The School of Social Sciences works toward a society made more human by its commitment to teaching, research and action. It sees a world dedicated to academic excellence, in which humanistic values and Ignatian spirituality harmonize with modern technology, in which passion for justice bonds with service to the country.

The School seeks to form a world of mature spirituality, focused on respect for the individual, freedom of scholarship, unity in collegiality, and the diversity of disciplines -- thus recognizing a multiplicity of perspectives from which to examine society, its history, and its social, political and economic lives.

Its pursuit of scientific study is grounded in Philippine society and culture, from which it seeks to contribute to national development and to Asia-Pacific and ultimately global inter- cultural heritage. It envisions itself collaborating with other

Schools of the Ateneo de Manila University, the other Ateneos, and other partners in the education of the Filipino.

The School of Social Sciences thus sees itself in the context of service to the nation, as a partnership of different departments and programs, each offering an expertise and a commitment.


Through teaching, research and service marked by scientific, critical and multidisciplinary analysis, the School of Social Sciences empowers individuals and communities to engage the diversity of social reality toward local, national and global transformation, in the Jesuit tradition of service of the faith and the promotion of justice.
