Social Science

Program code: 300M0

Aim of the program

The Social Science program is intended to enable students to pursue university studies in the broad areas of social science, law, education and administration through scientific learning based on the integration of knowledge and methods acquired in various Social Science discplines.

Goals of the program

  • Distinguish the main facts, notions and concepts related to the object of study, i.e.: the human phenomena, from a disciplinary and transdisciplinary perspective
  • Explain theories, laws, models and schools of thought in relation to their authors and concrete situations
  • Situate various issues related to citizenship within the context of globalization
  • Demonstrate the qualities associated with scientific intellect and critical thinking as well as the skills required to apply the qualitative and quantitative methods used in the field of Social Science
  • Use the necessary research and methods in order to pursue one’s studies
  • Use appropriate technologies to process information
  • Convey ideas clearly and correctly in the language of instruction
  • Read and understand basic Social Science documents conveyed in one’s second language
  • Integrate the learning acquired throughout the program

Each Cégep determines the ways in which the educational aims, common competencies, goals, objectives and standards are implemented. Each discipline chosen by the educational institution as being part of this program can use its own vocabulary and logic. This does not mean that students in a college must follow common courses. Each course may contribute to the full or partial achievement of these elements. The important thing is that all of these elements are taken into consideration in one or more courses and that they become specific focuses of teaching and learning, since they have been recognized as essential to the pursuit of university studies in Social Science and that the Diploma of College Studies (DEC) attests that these goals have been met.
