Honours B.A. in Social Innovation

This program, which combines management and the social sciences, helps you discover new ways of solving social problems, such as poverty, discrimination and the climate crisis.

In this program, you will gain a deeper understanding of these deep-rooted problems and the related systems and institutions.

You will also explore models of organizations and social enterprises that can help to mobilize your community to bring about positive and sustainable change.

Throughout the program, you will have the opportunity to develop practical skills, including budgeting, strategic planning, project management and citizen engagement.

Whether you are launching your own social innovation project or doing an internship in an existing organization, you can apply your knowledge concretely and practically.

An innovative pedagogical approach

Practising what it preaches, the Élisabeth-Bruyère School of Social Innovation offers a one-of-a-kind education model featuring intensive teaching blocks for mandatory courses.

Instead of attending weekly classes for different courses throughout a semester, you will take one course at a time for three weeks before moving on to the next one. 

This approach allows for more consistency between courses and more field trips. It also allows you to focus on one subject at a time.

Internships

This program includes at least one hands-on experience in the field. This experience can be done within an existing organization — in Canada or abroad — or it can involve starting a project.

 

This degree is offered jointly with the University of Ottawa.
