This course explores culture and society through the lenses of the social sciences (politics, economics, sociology, geography, environmental studies, gender studies, commerce, and international relations), asking the question: how can we interpret and understand the world around us? The course is designed to foster interdisciplinary analysis, helping students see connections between their courses, and the relevance of their studies to global issues and topics. Intended for first-year students, this course aims to help students transition to university-level work in the social sciences, and supports students as they develop good work habits, study skills, work-life balance, and information management skills. This course includes readings, lectures, small group tutorials, and experiential learning components.
