Students have the opportunity to explore courses from a range of progressive fields including, for example, work and labour studies, development studies, health and society, urban studies and/or African studies in order to critically examine historical and contemporary issues related to social and political thought, social justice and diversity, sustainability and the environment, social exclusion and identity, diaspora and global development.
