Governance, Leadership & Ethics

Huron’s new Major in Governance, Leadership & Ethics is a multidisciplinary program that integrates teaching, research and experiential learning to provide students with the intellectual depth and perspective to both understand contemporary governance challenges and contribute ethical leadership within their communities and society.

 

Public History

Huron’s joint Minor in Public History is the only undergraduate Public History program in Canada. It focuses on the skills needed for doing historical work outside academia – such as in government, private corporations, the media, in films, on websites, in historical fiction, in museums and in popular books and magazines, among others. It is supported by Huron’s established strengths in community-based and active history, and our partnerships with museums, heritage organizations, libraries and archives.

 

Global Health Studies

The Centre for Global Studies at Huron offers an Honors Specialization in Global Health Studies. This unique program is for students seeking further study and careers in global development, community development, humanitarian relief, human rights protection and global health itself.

 

Philosophy in Commerce

This new Major in Philosophy provides an opportunity for Huron students interested in business to familiarize themselves with issues relevant to the business world, but that arise out of the discipline of philosophy. Examples include business ethics, philosophy of risk and theories of property.

 

Jewish Studies

Introduction to Modern Jewish Thought is a new, first-year course designed to give students the chance to sample the kind of material offered in a Jewish Studies Major or Minor. It looks at recent Jewish philosophical self-understandings, and contemporary Jewish biblical scholarship dealing with moral issues, such as sexuality, reproductive issues, the position of women, capital punishment and the environment.
