Overview

These areas are important to attract significant funding in the form of grants, contracts, donations and partnerships; to devote considerable resources to the training of students; and to disseminate knowledge widely within the academic community, to policy-makers as appropriate, and to the broader public. They also provide direction on strategic investments in infrastructure, recruitment of faculty and staff, and allocation of internal research funds.

Moving forward, we will build on these research strengths for increased competitiveness on the international scene and to position our researchers to lead global networks. We will also nurture selected areas of emerging excellence that hold promise for the future.

In addition, it is an excellent springboard to studies in law or education.

This Social Sciences program at University of Ottawa is offered in English and in French.
