Welcome to the Faculty of Social Sciences!

Mandatory information sessions on campus for undergraduate students: Tuesday, September 6

As a first-year student, you probably have questions: What will my classes look like? Who can help me when I have questions? That's why the Faculty offers a mandatory information session that will introduce you to the Faculty's services, your student association, and the resources available to help you succeed. You’ll learn more about your program of study, and meet a professor and fellow students!
