Please Note: The undergraduate program in Social and Political Thought has been closed and will not be taking new students for Fall 2014. This will not impact continuing students in the program. Students interested in SPT might be redirected to the (formerly SOSC degree) NOW replaced with the Interdisciplinary Social Science. (ISS) Degree, since that is where the core curriculum now lives.
The Programme in Social and Political Thought offers students an opportunity to explore the way ideas are embodied and contested in social and political life. The programme also allows students to enhance their Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies degree with a Second major or minor that supplements and broadens their chosen discipline. The curriculum takes advantage of York ‘s well-known strengths as a centre of innovative and critical thinking about politics, society, economic ideas and culture.
