The world is changing at a rapid pace. Advances in technology, changing population structures, increasing international movement of people, technology and capital, and changes to physical environments, have serious implications for the economy, business, government and politics, social environments and physical living conditions. The Faculty of Social Science at Western is committed to intellectual inquiry that uncovers problems and solutions to these and other factors that affect the human condition. We produce new and innovative research and teach students the knowledge and skills necessary to make a difference in government, business, the non-profit sector and academia.
