Introduction

University College offers a number of programs and courses outside the areas traditionally covered by departments. These include programs and courses in Aboriginal Studies, Canadian Studies, Cognitive Science, Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence, Drama, Health Studies, Peace and Conflict Studies, and Sexual Diversity Studies, in addition to 199Y1 Seminars, and introductory courses for non-specialists in mathematics and physics. The overall aims of the College Programs are to foster interdisciplinary work in significant areas of study and to encourage intellectual breadth. Many program courses are open to students not enroled in the programs themselves.

The Aboriginal Studies Program (Major, Minor)

is described elsewhere in this Calendar, under ABS - Aboriginal Studies.

The Canadian Studies Program (Specialist, Major, Minor)

offers opportunities to study Canadian culture and society in an interdisciplinary manner and to explore cultural, social, economical and political developments in this diverse country. Students in the Specialist and Major programs select courses within either a Humanities or Social Science stream and they are encouraged to consider additional courses in Aboriginal Studies in completing the requirements of the Program.

The Cognitive Science Program (Specialist, Major)

is an interdisciplinary exploration of the nature of cognition, drawing on the perspectives of Philosophy, Psychology, and Linguistics.

The Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence Program (Specialist)

is an interdisciplinary exploration of the nature of cognition, drawing mainly on the perspectives of Computer Science and two of Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology.

The Drama Program (Specialist, Major, Minor)

is described elsewhere in this Calendar, under Drama.

The Health Studies Program (Specialist, Major)

focuses on health policy, practices, statistical methods, social and cultural expression, and the many areas of study that surround, interact with and support bio-medical research and clinical activity. The Major serves as a general introduction; the Specialist provides a more intense research focus with greater statistical emphasis.

The Peace and Conflict Studies Program (Specialist, Major)

provides undergraduates with an interdisciplinary education in the causes of human conflict and strategies for its resolution; topics of study include war, revolution, rebellion, ethnic strife, international law, and negotiation theory.

The Sexual Diversity Studies Program (Minor)

allows students to focus on questions of sexual identity, difference, and dissidence across disciplinary lines and cultural frameworks.

UNI, DRM and ABS courses are staffed by a combination of specific program staff members and members of various University departments, and are open to all students of the University. Further information on University College programs is available from the College.
