|The Social Science Degree program is offered by the Department of Social Science, providing students with a broad range of interdisciplinary social science courses. The Honours degree program is structured in five streams designated as (1) Social Theory, (2) Economy and Society, (3) Equity and Social Policy, (4) Equity and Culture, and (5) Health, Work, and Society: Canadian and Global Perspectives. Students can complete a 120 credit BA Honours degree, or a 90 credit BA degree without the stream option, or arrange for an Honours Double Major or Honours Major/Minor option.
Social Science students will study the interpenetration of culture, politics and the economy in Canadian and global contexts. They will examine current public debates about social justice issues through intensive exposure to contemporary struggles over economic and social class disparities, work and health in local and global environments, race, racism, and anti-racism, gender and sexuality, education, and the relation of community, regional, national, and global development.
