The Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, applying the motto "Science and Liberty" of Medellin University, fulfills by way of teaching, research, social interaction and internationalization the mission to provide socio-humanistic education to future professionals, which entails preserving, communicating and spreading knowledge of social sciences and humanities in order to solve problems in different areas of the university.

The social sciences and humanities educate students to better understand their social and political environment and also encourage students to participate in the construction of a new society: a society based on knowledge and able to think about and understand itself in its actual reality and from a historical perspective.
