Introduction

University College offers a number of programs and courses outside the areas traditionally covered by departments. These include UC One and programs and courses in Canadian Studies, Cognitive Science, Drama, Health Studies, and Sexual Diversity Studies, in addition to 199Y1 Seminars, and introductory courses for non-specialists in mathematics. The overall aims of the College Programs are to foster interdisciplinary work in significant areas of study and to encourage intellectual breadth. Many program courses are open to students not enrolled in the programs themselves.

UC One: Engaging Toronto

UC One is an exciting initiative that provides first-year students with a special university experience. Students choose from one of four courses, each of which is designed to engage with the city from a different perspective. Classroom learning is directly linked to real life experience.

UC One is a full-credit course, one of five courses typically taken by a first-year Faculty of Arts and Science student.  Enrolment in each course is limited to 25 students. Students enrol in one of the following four full year courses:

UNI101Y1: Citizenship in the Canadian City
UNI102Y1: Performing the City
UNI103Y1: Gradients of Health in an Urban Mosaic
UNI104Y1: Sex in the City

In UC One, you can choose a stream that complements your own interests.

Weekly lectures and seminars will be supplemented with prominent guest speakers, including political and business leaders, activists from non-governmental organizations, theatre directors, artists, and health practitioners. Students will have the opportunity to meet with the speakers and socialize with their fellow students after each guest lecture. Students will also participate in a range of field trips across the city.

UC One requires an application that is found on the UC One website at: www.uc.utoronto.ca/ucone. All first-year students in the Faculty of Arts and Science (St. George campus) are eligible for admission. Admissions are based on two short essays. Students may apply to more than one UC One seminar by ranking their preferences. Those participating in other One programs are excluded from UC One.

The Canadian Studies Program (Specialist, Major, Minor)

offers opportunities to study contemporary Canada in an interdisciplinary manner and to explore cultural, social, economical and political developments in this complex and diverse country. Students are encouraged to consider additional courses in Aboriginal Studies in completing the requirements of the Program.

The Cognitive Science Program (Major)

The Cognitive Science Program introduces students to the field of cognitive science: the interdisciplinary study of mind in humans and machines. Our students gain an understanding of such mental phenomena as perception, language, reasoning, and consciousness, and they integrate this understanding with an account of how the human brain works.

The Cognitive Science Arts Major has three course streams: Perception and Attention; Thinking and Reasoning; and Language and Cognition. The Cognitive Science Science Major has two streams: Computational Cognition and Cognition and the Brain. Courses include: COG250Y1 Introduction to Cognitive Science; COG341H1 and COG342H1 Issues in Cognitive Science; COG401H1 and COG402H1 Seminar in Cognitive Science; COG499H1 Independent Study; as well as courses drawn from offerings in Computer Science, Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology.

The Drama Program (Specialist, Major, Minor)

is described elsewhere in this Calendar, under Drama.

The Health Studies Program (Specialist, Major)

focuses the many areas of study that surround, interact with and support bio-medical research and clinical activity in regard to health, including health policy, practices, research methods, and socio-cultural expression. The Major serves as a general introduction; the Specialist provides a more intense research focus with more methodological emphasis.

The Sexual Diversity Studies Program (Specialist, Major, Minor)

allows students to focus on questions of sexual identity, difference, and dissidence across disciplinary lines and cultural frameworks. By examining sexual diversity across time and place, students will learn about the ways different cultures have separated the sexual from the nonsexual, the normal from the abnormal, and what the regulation of sexuality can tell us about how power operates along the lines of gender and race, for example. Students will gain an understanding of how and why certain sexual practices have come under scrutiny, and the significance of the various labels and identities that we have attached to them.

UNI and DRM courses are staffed by a combination of specific program staff members and members of various University departments, and are open to all students at the University. Further information on University College programs is available at www.uc.utoronto.ca. Further information on DRM is available at http://dramacentre.utoronto.ca/.

Asian Canadian Studies Minor (Arts program)

The Minor in Asian Canadian Studies provides students with an opportunity to better understand the historical, socio-cultural, economic, and political forces that shape our knowledge about people of Asian heritage in Canada, and in relationship to Asia and the diaspora. The category “Asian Canadian” is widely understood to refer to people in Canada of East Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and West Asian ancestry.

The program is interdisciplinary. Courses foreground the intersections of race and ethnicity with other indices of difference, such as gender, class, migration, sexuality, language, and spirituality, in local, national, and global contexts. Students take two required half-year core courses in Canadian Studies; select from an array of courses on Asian Canadian Studies; and supplement their program with the large number of cross-listed program courses noted below. The Minor in Asian Canadian Studies is easily combined with more traditional disciplinary areas of study, such as Anthropology, Art, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science and Sociology, or with interdisciplinary studies in Contemporary Asian Studies, Diaspora and Transnational Studies, and East Asian Studies.

Students will be encouraged to take full advantage of the opportunities available through the Canadian Studies program, including an annual undergraduate student conference and a journal, ImagiNATIONs, produced by and for undergraduate students. The Canadian Studies Student Union is a focal point for social as well as academic pursuits, and is open to students pursuing a Minor in Asian Canadian Studies.
