Students who are starting the Business & Society programme in September 2020 should enrol in either Section A or Section B of SOSC 1340 9.0 Introduction to Business & Society.
Please DO NOT enrol in SOSC 1340 6.0 Section M.
Completing SOSC 1340 9.0 Section A or Section B will fulfil the core requirement in BUSO but it will NOT COUNT as a general education course for majors in Business & Society.
This course introduces students to the social economy (including co-operatives, credit unions, worker-owned firms, non-profit social service organizations, etc.). It investigates the history of the social economy and its potential contributions to local, regional and international socio- economic development.
The course examines alternative business and economic structures to those of the private corporation in the contemporary world. Particular attention is paid to cooperatives and worker-owned firms and their impact not just on those who work in such organizations but also on the wider economic environment in which they operate.
Note: Successful completion of SOSC 1341 is a prerequisite for enrolment in SOSC 3041.
For the Honours program:
Note: Successful completion of SOSC 3041 is a prerequisite for enrolment in SOSC 4046.
Due to the cancellation of SOSC 4046 6.00 in the academic year, 2020-21, students should choose a different 4000-level course offered in BUSO. Students are recommended to take SOSC 4044 6.0 section B, though they may take any of the following as a substitute for SOSC 4046, provided that the course chosen as a substitute is not required in another part of your BUSO major: SOSC 4040 6.00; SOSC 4043 6.00; SOSC 4044 6.00; SOSC 4045 6.00; SOSC 4048 3.00 (fall) and SOSC 4049 3.00 (winter).
