AT YORK, WE EMPOWER OUR STUDENTS TO THINK BEYOND THE ORDINARY AND DELIVER THE UNEXPECTED DURING THEIR UNIVERSITY DEGREE STUDY AND BEYOND. YORK IS CANADA'S L E A D I N G I N T E R D I S C I P L I N A RY RESEARCH & TEACHING U N I V E R S I T Y THINK BEYOND YOUR PROGRAM How can you study the environment without taking into account biology, geography, economics or politics? Or study criminology without the perspective of psychology, sociology or the law? The overlap among disciplines produces the insight that illuminates an entire issue. That's what York's interdisciplinary approach is all about: real-world issues seen close up and in a global context. THINK BEYOND YOUR CLASSROOM At York we continue to develop partnerships with private and not-for-profit sectors at all levels of society both here and internationally. Outside partnerships mean you can take advantage of new ways of learning. Jump-start your career experience through internships and in-class experiential opportunities. THINK BEYOND YOUR BORDERS Engaging with the world means York is committed to encouraging our students to become "global citizens." Take advantage of opportunities to do research and cultural exchanges abroad.
