O que eu aprenderei?

A General Major in the Social Sciences, unlike a single discipline major, allows you to customize your course selection to your interests and abilities. Where you compromise depth of focus in one area, you gain breadth of knowledge in a few key areas, thus increasing your flexibility. This multidisciplinary approach provides access to the "big picture" or the wider context of any subject area. Conversely, the courses you choose can enhance your focus, and provide a cross-discipline perspective on one particular theme.

Students choosing a general major in the social sciences select three disciplinary streams from the following:

  • Anthropology
  • Archaeology
  • Economics
  • Geography
  • History
  • Kinesiology
  • Native American Studies
  • Political Science
  • Psychology
  • Sociology
  • Women & Gender Studies

As a student participating in a General Major degree program, you’re not limited to studying only within your three streams. As part of your liberal education, you will be required to take classes outside your major(s). This allows you to develop skills and experience in all three streams.

Possible Careers:

The discipline and the three streams that you choose to focus on will help determine the occupations for which you are best qualified. Below are some examples of where a general major in the social sciences may take you:

  • Selecting economics, geography and anthropology could provide you with the skills to pursue a career in urban planning or international development.
  • Indigenous Studies, sociology and political science might lead to a life in politics, government, criminal justice or social work.
  • An emphasis on kinesiology, anthropology and women and gender studies could provide a starting point for working in a non-governmental organizations, health facilities and treatment centres.

Professional disciplines & graduate studies: Your general major in the social sciences will provide you with an excellent foundation for journalism, law, social work, management, and education. The University of Lethbridge’s School of Graduate Studies offers programs, at the master and doctoral levels, in more than 60 disciplines — so why not consider pursuing grad school right here in Lethbridge! Whether you choose to do your advanced studies at uLethbridge or another institution, know that your undergraduate degree has set you on the path to post-graduate success.
