Social Sciences Interdisciplinary Program

Social Studies Interdisciplinary Students working together in a conference room.

The Social Sciences Interdisciplinary Program offers students an opportunity to focus on a particular thematic area of study, examining timely and relevant topics associated with our ever-changing world. The interdisciplinary nature of the program means that our students learn across traditional departmental boundaries, taking courses from various academic departments at the university.
