Capilano University’s School of Social Sciences considers people and society – how we relate to one another, how we interact, and how we in turn are shaped by others. Learn about the world around you – in scientific, quantifiable terms.

Why study the social sciences at CapU?

Social phenomena shape people’s lives. The social sciences cover a broad range of study, from the experience of individuals to whole societies.

With an emphasis on research methods, statistics and critical thinking, CapU Social Science options will empower you with transferable skills for a wide range of careers, including business, law, education and social services.
