DEC | 300.A1
DEC - Social Sciences & Education | 300.A1 | Social Sciences - Civilization and Citizenship

The Social Sciences: Civilization and Citizenship DEC program prepares students for a wide spectrum of university programs by exposing them to various disciplinary perspectives on humankind and our world. This program allows students to acquire a solid social science education focusing on the fundamental issues of the modern world through subjects such as geography, history, economics, politics, psychology and sociology. Throughout their studies, students will learn to identify, analyse and explain the main issues affecting the contemporary international scene.

The program is subdivided into three profiles: Civilization and Citizenship, International Studies, and Individual and Society. The first focuses on a solid social science education with a focus on international realities; the second consists of an introduction to the fundamental principles of management and mathematics; and the third comprises prerequisites for psychology and educational psychology programs in universities.

As of now, at LaSalle College, students have the option to study in both French and English. It is our bilingual option.
