The Yearlong Exploration of Social Sciences (YESS) is an innovative program designed to prepare and retain students in majors and careers in the social sciences. YESS consists of an integrated sequence of classes, enrichment activities, and student research opportunities through which students gain hands-on experience in modern social science research methods, explore theme-based interdisciplinary scientific issues, and develop mentoring relationships with CWU social science faculty.
Application to YESS is open to new first-year students with an interest in social science fields.
The Yearlong Exploration of the Social Sciences program at CWU involves faculty members from social science academic departments: Anthropology; Geography; Law and Justice; Political Science; Psychology; and Sociology. More information about the program and participating faculty members is available on the YESS website.
