About the program:
The general option of the Social Science program allows students the greatest amount of flexibility when selecting social science courses. It allows you to explore the social sciences before making a commitment to a particular
subject or area of study. It provides you with a strong background in the seven social science disciplines that will allow you to pursue studies in many programs at university.
Our teachers are dedicated:
The Social Science teachers work together with students to discuss, examine and debate current social issues and to ensure that students are well prepared for university.
The learning is dynamic:
In addition to traditional class lectures, teachers use a wide variety of teaching methods to keep classes interesting and dynamic. Multimedia, computer simulations, sources from current events and the news, and debating are all part of teaching and learning at Champlain College.
Structured and organized:
Teaching in our Social Science program is structured to ensure that courses complement each other. This coherence assures that what you are learning is both practical and purposeful while preparing you for university studies. Social Science is the study of human behaviour and social phenomena through the use of a wide variety of both qualitative and quantitative methods. Social Science involves many bodies of knowledge including anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, psychology and sociology.
