You are passionate about engaging with the complex and contested issues that societies face, and you want to understand the important roles that politics, economics and cultural differences play in creating and resolving them.

Our interdisciplinary department is home to three social science disciplines: anthropology, economics and political science. In each, you take part in debates, discussions and team-oriented academic activities, and you have the opportunity to strengthen your skills outside the classroom by participating in hands-on lab and fieldwork, co-ops and activities such as MacEwan University’s award-winning Model United Nations club.

At the end of the program, you are prepared to think critically, but not cynically, about contemporary challenges.

Dig a little deeper

We offer senior-level courses that allow you to explore specialized content or emerging issues in greater depth. The topics change each year and reflect the particular expertise of our faculty members.
