Dear students, faculty, and staff
In an effort to expand the breadth of student learning, Alexander College is continuously developing new programs, subjects, and courses to meet student interests and employment market demand. Beginning from Fall 2021 term, AC will offer three new disciplines: Spanish, Political Science, and International Studies.
To learn more about these new disciplines, please visit their webpages:
Spanish is a global language spoken by over 400 million people around the world. It is the official language in 21 countries of which 19 are located in South America.
Spanish feeds a diverse group of Spanish-speaking countries with their own vibrant and rich cultures.
Political science is a central element in the social sciences and focuses on the use of rationality and knowledge applied to public policy, government structure, international relations, and combines these sorts of foci with a deep exploration of the foundational ideas that underpin politics, the state, morality, ethics, freedom, security, and, ultimately, the “good” life.
International Studies: https://alexandercollege.ca/programs-and-courses/subject-areas/international-studies
International Studies is an established interdisciplinary field within the social sciences, but is relatively new owing to its connection with the emergence of a truly global society in the 20th century.
Mainstream courses in international studies draw upon resources from political science, economics, history, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, feminist theory and philosophy, global/critical race theory, media and technology studies, arts and music, and even the natural sciences as needed to inform our empirical understanding of “the international” terrain.
