|Description:||In this program, students ask questions about world problems. Students study in the fields of history, philosophy, religious studies, and politics, with the goal of developing ethical approaches to living together in our complex world. Within these larger fields of study, students are encouraged to pursue their own specific passions and interests: for example, the environment, international relations, religious conflict and peace building, and Indigenous studies, among others.
This program enables students to directly engage the world they live in. It asks students to examine why things have happened as they have, and to gauge the possibilities for change. The program does not shy away from complex problems but seeks to understand them in multiple contexts. It prepares students for a life beyond university studies, making them adaptable to various work environments, and ensuring a life-long commitment to engaging the world around them.
