Department Ethos

Here the past remains alive while the present is analyzed. This is where you will witness Caesar bludgeoned, Juno stormed, Buddha meditating and Millhaven exposed. From the depths of Hades to the heights of Vimy Ridge, from Moses to Obama, from the Fields of Mars to the Oil Sands; no journey is too distant and no challenge too complex. Through history we learn of the past and in Social Sciences we apply our skills and knowledge to the present. Enter our classes, enjoy our stories and learn from civilization's grandest characters. Young mind, here you will learn to live well. Here we teach you to love wisdom.
