Social Communication

The Faculty of Human Sciences provides three undergraduate programs in social communication in English: a bachelor of arts degree with a major in social communications, a minor and a certificate.

Conflict Studies

The need to understand, explain and reconcile deep-rooted conflicts is ever increasing. Thanks to a Master of Arts degree in Conflict Studies offered by Saint Paul University, we will soon have a new generation of experts in conflict resolution and peacebuilding to call upon. The master’s program emphasizes conflicts that divide communities along ethnic and religious lines – significant challenges facing societies today.

The Master of Arts in Conflict Studies is meant for graduates in political science, psychology, theology, ethics and related fields, as well as mid-career professionals who wish to acquire a new set of competencies. Graduates will be able to analyze conflict from a multi-disciplinary perspective, and to devise effective and appropriate conflict resolution strategies and peacebuilding interventions. They will be qualified to contribute to the conflict analysis and conflict resolution capabilities of governmental institutions, non-governmental organizations, community and religious groups, trade unions and private corporations.

Counselling and Spirituality

In our global multicultural environment, there is a desire to explore the spiritual dimension of everyday life. The challenge for professionals is to use a multifaceted approach, incorporating spiritual, psychological, social, cultural and religious dimensions. Their work takes them into a variety of settings: community services, professional organizations, hospitals and local faith communities.

The faculty seeks to fulfill this objective by creating a community of scholars and practitioners committed to academic excellence, to the creative development of the individual, and to research in new areas of pastoral practice.
