Social Science Major
The requirements for a Bachelor of Arts in Social Science appear in section 3 of the Academic Rules and Regulations for your cohort.
Social science majors must take 10 courses within the SSC department towards major requirements. Social science majors may currently complete requirements with tracks in the following fields:
- Anthropology (ANT)
- Economics (ECO)
- Geography (GEO)
- Law (LAW)
- Political Science (POL)
- Psychology (PSY)
- Sociology (SOC)
Students must take all methodology courses required for their courses, thesis, and major.
- Major: UCACCMET12 Research in Practice
- Courses: If applicable, methods requirements are stated in individual course outlines under the heading ‘prerequisites’.
- Thesis: Each Social Science thesis requires a level 2 methodology course (see below). Contact the fellow about exceptions. E.g. if a student with an interdepartmental major has already taken the SCI methodology course UCACCSTA21, discuss with the fellow if it can replace the courses below.
