UWO Social Science Plans for Graduate Growth

October 20, 2006

Already the University of Western Ontario's largest faculty, the Social Science faculty plans "to be the premier Social Science faculty in Canada for both undergraduate and graduate education, and to have research leaders in every discipline represented in the faculty." The draft academic plan identifies seven themes for research activities across disciplines, and proposals are pending to create a new Canada Research Chair in Health Geography, a Bioarchaeology Centre for the Study of Health and Disease in Antiquity, and a Neuroimaging Centre for Brain and Mind.
