Human Studies and Interdisciplinarity (PhD)

Examine human social and physical development over a lifetime.

Survol

Apply your knowledge to the many social and physical challenges we face during our lives, such as gender politics, group dynamics, death and dying.

Specialize in several areas of study, including cognition and communication, Franco-Ontarian and Francophone studies, interpretation, values and ethics, regional and cultural studies, and gender relations and sexuality studies.

Learn to observe and critically assess cultural influences, physical and emotional health as they relate to philosophy, psychology, life sciences, education, economics, and communication.

Develop a substantive research project and hone your critical thinking and communication skills with the support of program faculty. Take opportunities to learn outside of the classroom with national and international conferences, Laurentian University’s Research Week, and the Annual Human Studies Colloquium.

The Human Studies & Interdisciplinarity program offers students the opportunity to enhance their problem-solving and communication skills. It has supported the development of my understanding of diverse social problems as they are experienced on a global scale. Learning from a variety of passionate faculty members with expertise in fields such as sociology, communications, history, and gender studies, the program has undoubtedly made me a more well-rounded scholar. I am thankful for the many stimulating opportunities offered by the Human Studies & Interdisciplinarity program as well as Laurentian University more broadly, to share my research progress, its triumphs and challenges. By leading with a student-first orientation, the program finds balance in supporting students yet also developing their own unique leadership skills. It is these skills that will enhance my future ventures in the workplace and beyond.
