BA in Social Sciences

Why study Social Science?

Students push boundaries and develop critical thinking skills while examining society’s most pressing issues in Brock’s Faculty of Social Sciences.


The BA in Social Sciences encourages students to engage in a broad range of fields pertaining to the complexities of human interaction. The Faculty offers undergraduate courses in child and youth studies, communication, economics, environmental sustainability, film studies, geography and tourism studies, labour studies, linguistics, political science, popular culture, psychology, sociology, and women’s and gender studies.

The fifteen-credit BA in Social Sciences enables students to select classes from across these areas while also completing context credits and electives from other Faculties at Brock, assembling a program of study across disciplines that is individually tailored.

Degree benefits:

  • The BA in Social Sciences is easily customized, facilitating both academic exploration and career-driven program-building
  • Students are permitted to complete up to two minors in order to target their learning experiences
  • As courses are completed, eligible students may choose to apply to major in a given field
  • Mature, part-time, and working students will appreciate the flexibility of building a schedule around their existing commitments, not around specific required courses
