National Social Sciences Association (NSSA)

The National Social Science Association is the largest interdisciplinary association in the United States. Members consist of social scientists in two and four year colleges and represent the following disciplines: history, geography, education, economics, psychology, anthropology, sociology, ethnic studies, women's studies, interdisciplinary studies, political science and other related studies.  

The purpose of this association is to provide in-service training through its summer seminar, Fall Professional Development Conference, National Technology and Social Science Conference, and publications. The National Social Science Technology Conference is held every spring in Las Vegas, while the summer seminar and fall professional development conferences are held in attractive locations, even on cruise ships.
