DEGREES HSP, SP, Maj, Min

One naturally assumes that our social, political and everyday worlds and attitudes are simply what we inherit, either from our genetic constitutions or socio-economic, material situations. Philosophy, on the contrary, teaches that human beings largely fashion their lives and worlds by the choices they make, the words and concepts they employ, the thoughts and perceptions they generate, and how they interact and interrelate with others. To this end, philosophy studies such important questions as: What is the nature of the self? What can one genuinely know and not know? What can one hope for? What is to dwell in a political society? Does God exist? Do we have a unique purpose in this world? King’s offers a unique foundation year in philosophy for all majors and specialists; which, not only gives students an enhanced basic training in philosophy, but also helps students participate in and form unique study and philosophy communities.

Warsan Amin BA Hons ’13 Philosophy

“The World Economic Forum’s 2022 skills outlook suggests that critical thinking, creativity, reasoning and problem-solving are all essential skills for the future of work. I am very lucky to have specialized in Philosophy when I did, as these skills are only now becoming apparent as the strengths of a humanities background. I now have a thriving career in the tech start-up industry because I was able to recognize these skills and use them to help others grow their start-ups. Getting a philosophy degree was the best thing I could do to not only expand my mind but also safeguard my future.”

Patrick Searle BA’11 Religious Studies and Political Science

DEGREES HSP, SP, Maj, Min

Current Career: Director of Cyber Initiatives, Council of Canadian Innovators “The development of empathy is at the heart of the Social and Political Thought (SPT) program at King’s, helping students become better global citizens through the examination of their own beliefs and the perspectives of others about the world around them. In today’s modern workforce, employers look for empathy as an indicator of a high degree of emotional intelligence, which is especially important when building teams and identifying leadership potential within an organization. King’s has always instilled empathy into its programs, preparing its graduates like myself exceptionally well for environments filled with a diversity of political and social views different from my own.”

Religious communities and perspectives continue to play an important role in our world today. Religious Studies is the multifaceted field that explores the beliefs, practices, and histories of diverse religious traditions, as well as the questions and challenges posed by religion and spirituality in contemporary society.

Social and Political Thought (SPT) POSSIBLE CAREERS Politics, think tanks, education, governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations, public policy planning, healthcare management, urban and social planning, diplomacy, law DEGREES HSP, Maj, Min

Who Am I? Where am I going? What do I care about? What kind of world do we want? The only undergraduate program of its kind in Canada, Social and Political Thought (SPT) is an interdisciplinary program that explores contemporary issues and events of global importance from several different and engaged perspectives. Students are invited to examine the deeper, often hidden and obscured, structures that give shape to our present-day society. We examine how we are conditioned by social, legal, political, economic, military, and psychological forces of power. These forces of power not only produce societal orders, they also are the source of violence, aggression and conflict. SPT’s interdisciplinary focus gives students the unique possibility of understanding how concepts and imagined ends or goals of human power and desire come to shape and form the sense of ourselves, how we view others, and how we organise and build our worlds.

World Religions and Culture POSSIBLE CAREERS Counselling, social work, education, governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations DEGREES HSP, SP, Maj, Min

It is perhaps obvious that, in an increasingly multicultural environment, understanding the world’s religious traditions is more than ever required for us even to understand our new friends and neighbours. But the study of World Religions also helps us to understand ourselves and our own religious traditions, and there is wisdom in the dictum of all comparative studies: “She who knows only one, knows none.” The impulse to religion appears to be a universal characteristic of the human species, and studying the various forms this impulse has taken throughout history and across the globe is perhaps the most fascinating study one can undertake. Students can also pursue minors in Islamic Studies, Middle East Studies or a minor or major in Jewish Studies.

The SJPS program is one of the only programs in Canada that combines the study and work of both justice and peace. This program critically examines the root causes of social injustice and violence in society, in our community and in the world. And it innovatively explores alternatives to injustice and violence by focusing on how to build peace and justice. It does this through rigorous academic training, combined with community based learning and numerous optional experiential learning opportunities in the global community. SJPS is the hub at King’s University for engaged, social innovation and active learning in the creation of a more just and peaceful community and world. A degree in SJPS is for students who: • Want to develop critical research and analytical skills • Believe in becoming inclusive change agents in their community and around the world • Are interested in expanding their awareness of social justice and peace issues • Want to expand their understanding of the interlocking nature of poverty, violence, racism, sexism, colonization, disability, religious persecution, environmental degradation and other forms of oppression • Wish to participate in local and international experiential learning opportunities

Psychologists study the psychological, biological, and social bases of how we think, feel, and behave—and they use this knowledge to solve problems in the real world. As scientists, psychologists conduct research in many settings including universities, hospitals, government, schools, and corporations and apply the knowledge gained from research to solve personal, social, and practical problems. The courses and research of our faculty members span the breath of Psychology. We offer courses in a wide range of areas including addictions, child development, counseling, consciousness, creativity, diversity, education, law, thinking and perceiving, mental health, personality, psychological disorders, religion, sexuality, social issues, work and organizations. Several of these courses are unique to King’s.

Students in Sociology at King’s learn about all facets of the human condition from leaders in their fields in small class settings as they discuss the linkages between individual experiences with the wider society. Our students develop a range of analytic, computer and communication skills that enhance their employability while simultaneously developing an enriched understanding of the social, cultural and historical forces that have helped shape the modern world. Students will learn to appreciate the tension between individual agency and the social forces at play that constrain how human beings behave in all spheres of life. Students in their first year at King’s will take Sociology 1020, 1020W/X, or 1021E in order to gain entry into a Sociology module in their second year.

Second year provides a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of economic and statistical theory, as well as the opportunity to explore a number of options. Third and fourth year students explore a more specialized curriculum designed to bring students closer to the leading edge of current understanding in economics, finance, or financial economics. Many students take advantage of a unique opportunity provided by our Economics program to complete an undergraduate thesis based on an original research project guided by a faculty member. Students also have the option of pursuing internships, and the opportunity to studyabroad. Through these experiences, students can stretch beyond mastery of individual course content to discover how each element of an applied project fits into the bigger picture.

KING’S UNIVERSITY COLLEGE

Ishita Kumar Honors Specialization in Economics, Major in Applied Math “My favourite part about King’s is its small class sizes. It’s easy to make new friends and get connected with your professors as well as a member of the King’s Economath Society (KEMS) this helps me to meet people that share my academic interests.”

Bachelor of Management and Organizational Studies (BMOS) (OUAC code EKD) POSSIBLE CAREERS Finance, banking, investments, accounting, human resources, international business DEGREES HSP, SP, Maj

Students enrolled in the first year of the BMOS program will be required to take the same 3.0 courses: Intro to Business, Economics, and Math. They will be eligible to select 2.0 additional courses based on their areas of interest and potential stream in BMOS that they are thinking of studying. Students do not begin to specialize in one of the four following areas until their second year:

Accounting As part of the School of MEM, King’s Accounting degree is approved by CPA Ontario for entry into the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP), a must for anyone seeking to become a qualified accountant in Ontario. Companies use accounting to document and monitor their business, report to their stakeholders, and comply with the regulations. It is about finding the most efficient way to document and convey information under certain constraints and requirements.

Finance & Administration The Finance and Administration stream of King’s BMOS degree focuses on how firms raise capital, invest capital and return capital to investors. Finance as a discipline studies how individuals, businesses and organizations manage cash flows to optimally allocate scarce resources.

Global Commerce The Global Commerce stream of King’s BMOS degree provides students with the skills and perspective needed to lead global businesses. With globalization being the prevalent force in the world today, an understanding of how to manage global business is fundamental to business success. King’s has partnered with Fanshawe College to create a pathway to their post-graduate certificate in International Business Management which provides the opportunity to qualify for additional certification and recognition towards a Forum for International Trade Training (FITT) designation and a Certified International Trade Professional (CITP) designation.

Chandler Mills BMOS Hons ’19 Accounting “I chose King’s because of the smaller class sizes and amazing professors. Having the smaller class sizes enables participation in lectures in first year. The professors are all really strong teachers that care about student learning. I found that King’s is a low-pressure environment that makes learning less stressful and more enjoyable.”

Organizational & Human Resources The Organizational and Human Resources stream of King’s BMOS degree focuses on maximizing organizational performance through effective employee selection and training, performance appraisals and rewards systems, as well as leadership development and diversity management. Three major factors determine the economic success of a


firm: land, labour, and capital. Therefore, being able to manage human resources (labour) is at the core of any successful business. Students enrolled in the OHR program can pursue a Professional Designation by taking accredited courses during their program. For more details go to www.hrpa.ca.

Internship Program The MOS program offers an Industry Internship Program (IIP) for students interested in practical experience prior to graduation. As interns, students spend 4 to 16 months working in industry between their third and fourth years of their Bachelor of Management and Organizational Studies (BMOS) degree. The School of MEM Career Readiness Program helps students prepare for this experience and find a better match with theses employment opportunities. Western Campus and affiliates have placed students with employers that have included: • IBM • 3M • Diamond Aircraft • Brose Canada Inc. • CAA • Formet Industries • Research in Motion (RIM) • Canada Revenue Agency • Syncrude • Hamilton Port Authority Many companies recruit students upon completion of the internship and graduation.

This program is part of our commitment to professional development. Students have the opportunity to experience: • Resume writing training • Interview skills • Training in computer software programs for the workplace • Social Media workshops

Awards and Recognition The School of MEM has a number of ways to recognize students that go above and beyond in their studies and their work for us. Students who excel in their first year courses have the opportunity to be nominated for the King’s School of Management, Economics, and Mathematics Teaching Assistant Fellowship. These are leadership and mentoring positions that would run through the academic year, and involve being core facilitators of the Economics, Mathematics, and Statistics (EMS) help centre at King’s. There are 15 fellowships in total. All 1st year students with top marks receive a certificate of Outstanding Academic Performance during our MEM social in February. Research Assistants that go above and beyond in their roles may be granted recognition and award the title Research Associate.

School of Social Work What is Social Work? Social Work is a profession concerned with helping individuals, families, groups and communities to enhance their individual and collective well-being. It aims to help people develop their skills and their ability to use their own resources and those of the community to resolve problems. Social Work is concerned with individual and personal problems but also with broader social issues such as poverty, unemployment and domestic violence. Human rights and social justice are the philosophical underpinnings of social work practice. The uniqueness of social work practice is in the blend of particular values, knowledge and skills, including the use of relationship as the basis of all interventions and respect for the client’s choice and involvement.

School of Social Work King’s School of Social Work is a wonderful place for learning: a place where you can push conceptual boundaries, explore new territory, and enhance your skills. Our small class sizes and the quality and commitment of our faculty to teaching will provide you with a warm and stimulating environment. We offer both the Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) and the Master of Social Work (MSW)

Assistant General Manager of the London Knights King’s BMOS program 2013-2015 HBA ‘17 “I cannot say enough about the first two years of my undergraduate degree that I spent at King’s. I really enjoyed the smaller class sizes that encouraged participation, getting to know your professors, and the learning environment that was created. It helped to prepare me for going to the Ivey Business School as King’s taught me how to participate in class and back up the answers I provided with facts and reason. The experience I had further helped me into my career and my role as the Assistant General Manager of the London Knights Hockey Club where I am expected to come into work with new ideas on how to make our program better.”

My King’s Experience Students’ Council, Campus Life and Athletics Educating the whole person involves student engagement outside of the classroom. King’s strives to create a formative experience for all its students. Leadership, teamwork, volunteerism, and a commitment to service are transferrable skills to life beyond King’s. KUCSC The King’s University College Students’ Council (KUCSC) is a vibrant and active student leadership group which serves to enhance the King’s Undergraduate Experience. The KUCSC is comprised of an elected Executive, Representatives and appointed Commissioners who are dedicated to improving the student experience by planning events, advocating for students, connecting students to resources and services, and by providing many opportunities for leadership development.

Hailley White KUCSC Interim President 2019-2020 Program: Honours Specialization in Psychology, Minor in Philosophy

“When King’s students get involved on campus they contribute to enriching the university experience and can help make changes that matter. There are so many opportunities to participate in campus life that will teach you skills beyond what you can learn in the classroom and that will help you make lasting friendships. Becoming a part of the Students’ Council has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my undergraduate career because it has challenged me and helped me grow as a person, student, and leader.”

With a wide variety of academic, cultural, social and philanthropic clubs, the KUCSC funded club system is a great way to meet new people that share similar interests through club activities and trips. The KUCSC organizes many events, awareness weeks and intramural sports teams throughout the year. The King’s Connection is a successful retail store, ticket booth and information centre which is operated by the Students Council and is located on the main floor of the Student Life Centre. All proceeds from the store go directly back into student programming. The KUCSC also funds and supports student publications such as the Regis Magazine and Kings Academic Research Journal.

Kelsey Veltman Western Mustangs Women’s Volleyball, 5 time OUA 1st team all star degree: BA ‘19 Disability Studies

“I chose King’s because I had the ability to achieve my goal of playing volleyball at Western and be a part of a small and close community that fits my learning style. Staying at King’s was key for me because it allowed me to be in the Disability Studies program. I became interested in this program after taking a class called Disabilities in Sports. This class provided me with the desire to see my lessons being put into practice, so I joined the Canadian Sport Institute Ontario in the summer. While working there, I was in an environment with athletes in wheelchairs who inspired me, and I got excited to see how my program could lead to something like this or the Paralympics. As an athlete, King’s is a place where you can achieve your academic and athletic goals. My next goal is to play professional volleyball in Europe and I can’t thank King’s enough for their support and accommodation to make this possible.”

Fuel your Spirit

“We desire to address and support the whole person. Our role includes bringing people together in prayer and is about so much more. It is about helping people to see the importance of the Spirit in their lives and that our vision as students, staff and faculty should always be looking outward to transformation in the community. We do this within the Catholic tradition, which by its very nature, is inclusive and seeks to build bridges with members of the Church, members of other Christian churches, other people of faith and those who are seeking the good.” Father Michael Bechard, D.Min Chaplain and King’s alumnus ’91 44

KING’S UNIVERSITY COLLEGE


As King’s continues to grow, Campus Ministry is one of the knots that keep us connected to our mission, our history, our community and to one another.

Through a wide variety of on-campus and outreach programs and services, Campus Ministry has created places for the community to explore its faith. Programming like the Veritas Lecture Series, monthly outreach to The Hospitality Centre and the Pine Channel Experience are all places for students and other community members to explore, find hope, grow and to be nourished. “We need to keep challenging ourselves to put our studies and our prayer into concrete service. It’s about faith in action” says Father Michael Bechard, Chaplain.
