<Undergraduate Courses and Programs
The Division of Social Science offers a wide range of interdisciplinary courses. Many of these courses are offered in conjunction with the interdisciplinary programs which are housed in the division, including African studies, business and society, communication studies, criminology, health and society, international development studies, labour studies, Latin American and Caribbean studies, law and society, science and technology studies, social and political thought, South Asian studies and urban studies.
Selected 1000- and 2000-level courses offered through the Division of Social Science are a part of the Faculty of Arts foundations program. These courses have a nine-credit value, and as a part of the Faculty of Arts general education requirement, introduce students to interdisciplinary study and emphasize critical thinking, reading and writing skills at the university level. (For purposes of meeting program requirements, all foundations courses will count as six credits towards the major or minor.)
Not all of the courses listed below will necessarily be offered in any given year. For details of courses to be offered, please consult the Division of Social Science supplemental calendar.
Note 1: AK/SOSC 1000-level courses are part of Atkinson's general education requirements and are administered by the School of Social Sciences. General education courses do not fulfill elective requirements.
Note 2: AK/SOSC courses aim to introduce students to some of the most important aspects of thought and research in the social sciences. These courses are designed to help them gain an understanding of the social environments that shape their interests, opportunities and identities. Through these courses, students are introduced to socially relevant research that contributes to public debate leading to action for social change. These courses are interdisciplinary in nature.
Note: Courses whose numbers have 1 or 2 as the first digit are open to first-year students.
N.B. : Les cours dont le numéro commence par le chiffre 1 ou 2 sont ouverts aux étudiants de première année.
