The Social, Cultural and Media Studies department offers courses and degrees in several disciplines. These disciplines, along with other social sciences, help to develop our understanding of contemporary social issues. In other words, they help us understand how and why we live as we do. Please visit the following pages to explore all SCMS has to offer:
Anthropology looks at contemporary and past societies and cultures around the world.
Indo Canadian Studies is an interdisciplinary program which examines a diverse area of study about a subcontinent and the Canadian diaspora.
