Social Science Explorer was a 2014 Master’s project created by Matthew M. Hall. It was made to show the value of an educational news site dedicated to the latest social scientific discoveries.

The concept garnered a Rasmussen Merit Award from Michigan State University’s College of Communication Arts & Sciences.
