The School of Integrative Studies (formerly New Century College[1]) is housed within George Mason University's College of Humanities and Social Sciences[2] and is located on the main campus of George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. The School of Integrative Studies was founded as New Century College in 1995 in response to the Commonwealth of Virginia's call for a "University of the 21st Century."[3]

On May 1, 2016, the School of Integrative Studies changed their name from New Century College. [1]

The School of Integrative Studies offers a bachelor of arts and a bachelor of science degree in integrative studies, and a bachelor of arts in environmental and sustainability studies (joint degree with Environmental Science and Policy in the College of Science). As part of all three degree programs, students complete their degree with an interdisciplinary concentration[4]in such areas as Childhood Studies, Elementary Education, Advertising, Management, Social Justice and Human Rights, International Studies, Applied Global Conservation, Life Sciences and Secondary Education concentrations.[5] The School of Integrative Studies also offers minors in childhood studies, consciousness and transformation, leadership, multimedia, nonprofit studies, and social justice.[6]

Social Action and Integrative Learning, an evolving community of Mason students, faculty, administrators, alumni, and community partners who are active and passionate collaborators in effecting positive social change, is housed within the School of Integrative Studies.[7]
