Studying Social Science in Canada

Students studying social sciences learn about the fundamentals of the various social sciences such as criminology, economics, political science, public administration, psychology, sociology, and women's studies. Students gain an understanding of human development, relationships, healthy communities, diversity, equity, and social justice. Students examine the development of social thought and of the social sciences, such as how economics, healthcare, political science, and sociology been shaped through the modernization of society.

A general program generally includes studies into micro- and macroeconomics, where students learn about the application of microeconomic theory to current and emerging social and economic problems, and public policy in the contexts of money and banking, stabilization efforts, international trade, the structure of various economies, and responses to the emerging patterns of global competition.

Students study the psychology of social groups, including research methods, interpersonal perception, self-concept, attitudes and persuasion, prejudice and discrimination, interpersonal attraction and love, and the influence of groups on decisions and behavior. This leads to criminology, where students study how and why some individuals become criminals. This includes studies into serial killers, stalkers, and rapists, as well as the latest techniques used in criminal profiling.

As well, see the articles on anthropology and sociology for more specific information pertaining to those fields.
