Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Canada 2017. Sports Studies is an integrated program drawing on the expertise of faculty in Psychology, Sociology, Politics, Business and Health Sciences. The program provides an intensive study of sport and exercise in society. The program is designed to encourage students to adopt an interdisciplinary perspective that gathers together the individual, local, national and international dimensions of sport and exercise. Consequently, it exposes students to the social, biological, political, business and economic aspects of sport in sport in society. It also provides opportunities for practical experiences. Students interested in the science side of sport are encouraged to consider the Health Science Concentration of the Biology program. Program Highlights: Facilities include an athletic performance lab. This multidisciplinary program allows students to take courses from a broad spectrum ranging from Social Sciences to Natural Sciences to Business, thereby developing multiple perspectives on the importance of sport in society. Popular Courses: The Social Psychology of Sports Exercise Sports Writing Sport, Culture and Society Sport and Psychology: Performance Enhancement Introduction to Exercise Physiology Where can this lead me? Employment opportunities may occur in sports organizations at the community and corporate level, as well as in volunteer program to develop sports. The program will also prepare students for further studies in areas such as recreation, leisure and sports management. Courses & Programs Degree Options: Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) Major in Sports Studies, with optional Concentrations in: Sports Studies Health and Sports Studies Business and Sports Studies Minor in Health and Sports Studies Program Concentrations The Sports Studies Major program can be specialized by the addi- tion of any one of three concentrations: i) Athletic Development, ii) Business and Society, or iii) Health. In addition to the 48 credits required for the Major, extra credits in the concentration area are required to earn this designation on the transcript. See the second table below for a complete list of the required courses for each of the concentrations. The Sports Studies Major, with any one con- centration, is a 60-credit (20 courses) program. Students deciding to add a concentration must ll out a “program change” form with the Chair of the Sports Studies Program at some point during their program. Note that students pursuing the Business and Society concen- tration are not eligible for the minor in Business Administration from the Williams School of Business. It is possible to add any combination of two of the concentra- tions. The length of the program will then increase to 81 cred- its (27 courses). For a double concentration, all of the courses in Blocks A, B, C and E of both concentrations must be completed. The courses which will count for Block D must be different than those used for any of the other blocks. If the desired double con- centration is Health combined with Business and Society, then Block D will only be 6 credits. Block D will be 12 credits for the other two possible double concentrations. Students completing the Athletic Development concentration of the Sports Studies Major may have completed the requirements for coaching certi cation (via Sports Québec and the NCCP) lev- els A, B, and C. (The Sports Studies Program Committee has ap- plied for this coaching certi cation for its program, and is present- ly anticipating approval in time for 2016 graduation). Electives Bachelor Degree programs at Bishop’s require 120 credits. Quebec students with a DEC receive 30 advanced credits, allow- ing completion of the degree in three years. Therefore a Sports Studies Major has 72 credits (42 for a Quebec student) of “free elective” courses. Students are encouraged to consider adding a minor from another discipline, or even a second major. Students with a concentration in Sports Studies will still have 60 (30 for Quebec students) free elective credits, enough to pursue addition- al major or minor specialities. All Sports Studies students must meet the “Arts and Science” requirement of the University by completing at least one (3 credit) course offered by the Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. The Sports Studies Optional courses which satisfy this re- quirement are: BCH 101, BIO 131, BIO 233, EXS 317 and EXS/ BIO 433. A free elective may also be used for this purpose.

The Catholic Studies Program is an academically rigorous and interdisciplinary exploration of Catholicism. Courses engage with the Catholic intellectual tradition—the 2000 year-long dialogue between and within faith and culture. We approach the texts of the Catholic intellectual tradition with a view toward understanding the role that Catholicism has played in the human search for meaning and in the conviction that thinking is a critical part of belief. Catholic Studies enthusiastically welcomes students from any or no faith tradition. The program is dedicated to a critical and scholarly engagement with Catholicism, and is dispositionally nondogmatic. Courses are especially attentive to the ways in which the Catholic intellectual tradition can help students understand issues of social and economic justice and peace. You are therefore given the freedom to explore perennial human questions and pressing contemporary concerns in a way that is open to the potential contributions of faith. You are also given the chance to study the Catholic Church itself, as a cultural and political, as well as a religious institution. You will also benefit from co- and extra-curricular events, service opportunities, scholarly activities, and community outreach sponsored by the St. John XXIII Centre for Catholic Studies. CRITICAL & TRANSFERABLE SKILLS Students in Catholic Studies benefit from an interdisciplinary course of study which draws from many different academic disciplines. The interdisciplinary character of the program helps students become well-rounded thinkers, able to analyze problems and phenomena from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and using diverse analytical tools. The program’s emphasis on the Catholic intellectual tradition will help students develop the skills of thoughtful reading, clear writing, and verbal eloquence. COMMON CAREERS AND GRADUATE PATHWAYS Catholic Studies provides students with well-rounded interdisciplinary liberal arts preparation for success in a wide variety of career paths. Catholic Studies graduates will be especially prepared for work in non-profit and government organizations, international development, education, and business. Catholic Studies also prepares students for graduate study and participation in various forms of religious ministry. Catholic Studies will enrich a student’s life by exposing them to the richness of the Catholic Church’s intellectual tradition, and the ways in which the faith can respond to human questions and concerns that are both ancient and new. RELATED AREAS OF STUDY Courses in Catholic Studies are complemented with cross-listed offerings in a variety of academic departments at St. Thomas, including: English Language and Literature, Religious Studies, History, Philosophy, Political Science, Sociology, and the Fine Arts.

Bachelor of Arts in Economics

University of Prince Edward Island
Campus Full time September 2017 Canada Charlottetown

Economics belongs to the branch of knowledge known as the "Social Sciences." The social sciences deal with both intergenerational and intra-generational interactions between human beings in a society. [+]

Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Canada 2017. Economics belongs to the branch of knowledge known as the "Social Sciences." The social sciences deal with both intergenerational and intra-generational interactions between human beings in a society. Human activities can, of course, be studied from many different perspectives. We could look at humans as political, psychological, historical, or economic beings. A political scientist, for example, would analyze the political activities of the people while an economist would examine activities related to their livelihood. Human beings, in order to fulfil their innate desire for food and shelter, engage in activities that lead them to the production of goods such as food, clothing, and housing, as well as services. These acts of production and consumption to satisfy human wants form the very basis of the subject matter of Economics. Perhaps observing people engaged in this pursuit, Alfred Marshall defined economics as "a study of mankind in the ordinary business of life." Since the ordinary business of life involves the use of limited natural and human-made resources (capital), people have always been interested in making the best possible use of these resources. This efficient use of resources has been the underlying theme in economics. Hence, the most succinct definition of economics would be that economics deals with the efficient utilization of scarce resources to satisfy human wants. Scarcity gives legitimacy to economics. If there is no scarcity, there is no economic problem. The discipline of Economics is built upon two strands of theory: Microeconomic Theory and Macroeconomic Theory. Microeconomic deals with the study of individual units in an economy, such as consumers, producers, and the interaction of these units in a given market structure. Macroeconomic theory, on the other hand, deals with the economy as a whole. Here we analyze the problems related to unemployment, growth, inflation, and the balance of payments. Most of the other courses in Economics are applied courses which use the concepts of Microeconomic Theory and/ or Macroeconomic Theory. An understanding of the relationship between these two theory courses and other fields in economics is usually helpful in planning your selection of courses. REQUIREMENTS FOR A MAJOR IN ECONOMICS Students wishing to major in Economics must complete fifty- four semester hours in Economics and Mathematics according to the program described below. All courses are valued at three semester hours. Economics 101 - Introductory Microeconomics 102 - Introductory Macroeconomics 203 - Intermediate Microeconomics I 204 - Intermediate Macroeconomics I 305 - Intermediate Microeconomics II 306 - Intermediate Macroeconomics II One of: 307 (Formerly 231) - Mathematical Economics 303 - Economic Methodology 308 (Formerly 411) - Introduction to Econometrics PLUS: Seven (7) additional elective courses in economics, at least three of which must be at the 300 or 400 level. Mathematics 111 Finite Mathematics 112 Calculus for the Managerial, Social, and Life Sciences OR 191 and 192 – Single Variable Calculus I and II Statistics 221 - Introductory Statistics I OR Business 251 - Introduction to Management Science Recommendation Students planning to follow graduate studies in Economics are advised to plan their courses with the Department. Such students should include the following courses as part of their seven electives in Economics: 307 - Mathematical Economics and 308 - Econometrics as well as 403 - Advanced Microeconomics and 404 - Macroeconomics. The Department further recommends that students who wish to go on to graduate studies choose Mathematics 191 and Mathematics 192, rather than Mathematics 112, as a stronger base for additional Mathematics courses. Students should also consider including Mathematics 261 (Linear Algebra) in their program of studies. [-]

Bachelor of Arts in Humanities

St. Stephen's University

Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Canada 2017. Bachelor of Arts in Humanities THE VALUE OF A HUMANITIES DEGREE The goal of the study of humanities is to provide an education that serves as a foundation for the rest of your life. No university, however great, can teach you everything you need to know for your future. But the value of the Bachelor of Arts in Humanities degree is that you learn how to organize ideas, develop the ability to develop new skills and increase your capacity to solve problems and seize opportunities. We believe the integration of the classical disciplines provided by an SSU BA degree, combined with our Christian community and our study abroad programs provides an excellent atmosphere for students to receive an education. Students whose quest is spiritual and intellectual formation will learn to think through and articulate their ideas and values within a global perspective. HUMANITIES MAJORS Ancient History & Religious Studies Courses in ancient history & religious studies explore the Ancient Near East and Mediterranean in order to understand the Judeo-Christian tradition within its historical context as well as its contemporary relevance. This informed understanding will offer significant insight into other academic disciplines and the basis for meaningful dialog with other major religions. History Students of history seek to understand the lives of people in the past: their ideas, motives, values, customs, circumstances, institutions, actions, and artifacts in order to discover meaning, order, and purpose. Large topics in the history of Western Civilization over the past 2500 years are explored, as well as focused regional and national themes. Students are encouraged to confront essential human questions in the context of Christian and alternative paradigms and in light of the most relevant historiography. English The study of English introduces students to the classics of world literature as well as to lesser known works from antiquity to the present. Students develop an appreciation of the verbal icon and learn skills in textual analysis that enable them to become proficient readers of literature. They develop their understanding of the philosophies that shape literary world-views, and of the relationship between these world-views and the Christian faith. Philosophy Philosophy probes major influences throughout the history of ideas and seeks understanding of the thought of the present day. Starting with the pre-Socratic thinkers, studies in philosophy trace the line of formative influences to the present in the Western tradition, and examine also the interaction between philosophy and the Christian faith.

Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Canada 2017. Can you imagine how music might offer a vision of beauty in a broken world, help us hear the voices of those different from ourselves, transform us, and be seen as a gift of God? Music studies balance rigorous discipline alongside creative imagination, and the urge for artistic excellence and passion alongside compassion and sensitivity to human need. Concentrations include performance, music education, musicology, music ministry, and comprehensive studies. The Bachelor of Music is a professional program offering the following concentrations: music education, music ministry, musicology, performance, and comprehensive. Students are able to complete one or more concentrations for their degrees. Graduates from these concentrations frequently pursue graduate studies before embarking on a professional career in music. While these concentrations are identified as career track, these degrees are also valuable as general arts degrees. B.Mus. graduates often are acknowledged as well-disciplined, well-educated, and imaginative people, with the competence to serve society well in a wide variety of areas. Music Education Concentration - This concentration is designed for students who are interested in teaching music in the school setting. Students can focus on Early/Middle Years, Senior Years Choral, or Senior Years Instrumental. The B. Mus. in music education concentration requires a further two-year Certification program before the graduate is able to teach in the public school system (Manitoba universities offer only two-year after-degree education certification programs. Other provinces differ, with some offering 8- and 12-month programs). Music Ministry Concentration - This concentration is designed for students who wish to pursue music ministry in congregational settings, combining two of CMU's strongest programs: music and theological studies. The program allows students to develop competencies in their instrument of choice, including the voice, and provides the student with sufficient flexibility to pursue other areas of interest in music ministry, including choral and instrumental conducting, arranging, and composition, as well as further theological studies. Musicology Concentration - This concentration is designed for students wishing to focus their studies on music history and theory at an undergraduate level, particularly with the goal of continuing in graduate studies. Musicology is understood as an overarching discipline, incorporating music history, theory, aesthetics, and philosophy, as well as ethnomusicology. As an undergraduate program, this concentration introduces students to these disciplines, while at the same time allowing the student to begin serious work in a chosen direction in this discipline through reading courses and a thesis course. Performance Concentration - The performance concentration allows students to focus on developing their gifts and abilities in both solo and collaborative performance. This concentration includes the requirement of two recitals within the last two years of the program. It also allows students to develop other competencies which are unique to their chosen areas of performance. Students not infrequently combine this concentration with a second concentration. Comprehensive Concentration - This concentration allows for a great deal of flexibility within the Bachelor of Music degree program. It is particularly suitable for those planning for careers or further studies in music administration, music production, composition, or performance in folk, jazz, or pop styles. It is also a degree program which allows a student to customize an individualized program of studies not offered in existing concentrations.
