Social Science

Social Science (300.M_)

Program planner for Fall 2010 or Later – John Abbott College The following planner indicates all the courses needed and the usual path to complete your DEC in this program.

SOCIAL SCIENCE - GENERAL

Social Science is the study of all aspects of human life from many different perspectives. In addition to the compulsory courses in economics, history, methodology and psychology, students in John Abbott College’s Social Science program can choose courses in fields such as anthropology, business, classics, geography, mathematics, philosophy, political science, religion and sociology. The program’s greatest advantage lies in the depth and breadth of knowledge and understanding students acquire. Graduates gain valuable university skills in methods of research, writing, analysis, synthesis and the presentation of ideas.

  • Students who require a mise à niveau English or French course will be required to pass it before they can take their introductory course in English or French.
  • Students will be required to pass a Ministerial Exam of Language of Instruction and a Program Comprehensive Assessment. The Program Comprehensive Assessment is included in the Integration in the Social Sciences course (300-301-AB).
Semester 1
ENGLISH | 603-101-MQ

Students are required to successfully complete four (4) English courses to obtain their DEC. Courses 603-102 and 603-103 may be taken in either order only after successfully completing 603-101. Course 603-200-MQ is the 4th and last English course required. Click here to view courses list.

FRENCH | 602-1xx-MQ

Every student needs one of each of the Block “A” and Block “B” courses in order to complete their DEC. For each block, there are four levels of courses: Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 and Level 4.
Placement in the appropriate level of French is determined by the students’ high school marks. The French Department reserves the right to change the placement of a student upon written notice. Students take the Block “B” course at the same level as the Block “A” course.
If placement determines that students do not have a college level of proficiency in French, students may be required to take remedial courses to upgrade their knowledge of the language. Click here to view courses list.

The proper uses of basic descriptive statistics and statistical inference are explored through examples from all the Social Sciences. In addition to lectures, students experiment with a variety of quantitative methods using a statistical software package in a weekly laboratory.

The proper uses of basic descriptive statistics and statistical inference are explored through examples from all the Social Sciences. In addition to lectures, students experiment with a variety of quantitative methods using a statistical software package in a weekly laboratory.

History of Western Civilization | 330-910-AB

Our Greek and Roman heritage, Christianity, barbarian invasions, the fall of the Roman Empire and the first great, uniquely European civilization which took shape during the Middle Ages are also covered. The course emphasizes the Renaissance, Reformation, Scientific Revolution, Age of Discovery, Enlightenment, French Revolution, Industrialization, Nationalism and the Age of Imperialism.

Introduction to Psychology | 350-102-AB

This course introduces students to the scientific study of specific aspects of human behaviour and mental processes including: (1) the evolution of psychological thought and the identification of major psychological perspectives; (2) research methods in the study of Psychology; (3) the biological basis of behaviour, including the structure and function of the brain and nervous systems; (4) cognitive and emotional processes and, (5) learning and human adaptation. Students acquire the basic concepts and processes associated with the study of human behaviour. Further emphasis is placed on the understanding of how this knowledge and these abilities may relate to our lives and how they may apply in varying cultures.

Social Science students may choose an option leading to a Social Science Certificate in Sports Studies. This option is available to all Social Science students and is designed for those who would like to obtain their DEC in Social Science with a focus on sport and sport-related topics. The certificate combines many elements inherent to the study of Social Science. While the goal of this certificate is to provide a sports-related direction, it does so without locking-in the student per se.

Sport has become an integral part of our society, and this proliferation has been mirrored by an increasing trend to study sport from diverse academic viewpoints.

While traditional sport research and practice have been concerned with athlete improvement and performance outcomes, the new approach is far more eclectic, drawing on many academic fields in an ever-expanding scope of study. A review of Canadian university courses indicates an increasing number of disciplines offering sport and sport-related courses as part of their mainstream curriculum.

Sport reflects the fundamental values and issues in our lives, and it is this premise that provides the basis for a Certificate in Sports Studies within our Social Science Program. Together our sport and sport-related courses will allow the student to confront the key aspects of contemporary sport and to examine the wider social, economic and cultural factors affecting humans in general.

The Certificate in Sports Studies may enable the student to examine many of the sub-disciplines in the sport sciences, including nutrition, marketing, psychology, economics and physics. Further, the interdisciplinary approach allows the student to complete some of the required English, Humanities and Research courses in the sport domain.

To fulfill the requirements for the Certificate in Sports Studies, students must complete a MINIMUM of five (5) courses.

To register for the certificate, contact the coordinator of Sports Studies by sending an e-mail to sportstudies@johnabbott.qc.ca.

To receive a Social Science Certificate in Sports Studies students must take at least five (5) Social Science courses from the following lists:

Students are required to do their research paper in the compulsory course Integration in the Social Sciences (300-301-AB) on a topic relevant to Sports Studies
