ABOUT FACULTY OF
Welcome to the Faculty of Social Sciences!
Our diverse and vibrant community is dedicated to intellectual discovery, to making knowledge matter in the world, and to helping students reach their highest potential. In our technology-driven and ever-changing era, developing and fostering the skills that make us human -creativity, critical thinking, empathy, communication and cultural understanding – are valued regardless of what career path you choose. The Social Sciences teach us to understand the world we inhabit and offer us the knowledge and insight to imagine different futures. Our curriculum and our faculty provide diverse perspectives to shape students minds and actions while increasing awareness in the pursuit of academic excellence, as they prepare for a 21st-century career. Our students seek to understand the nature of people and society, unlocking new data that holds a mirror up to the world. By pushing the boundaries of our understanding of what it means to be human, our students give a voice to communities that traditionally haven’t had one and shine a light on the blind spots within our society. We offer interdisciplinary pathways that will give you the practical tools you need to make a positive impact on your community, and beyond.
We hope you will join us in our mission!
