The Social Sciences 20–30 program is intended to complement the Alberta Social Studies program by encouraging increased understanding of human society and social relationships. Courses in this program are distinct from the Social Studies curriculum in that they focus on the structure, concepts and methodologies of specific social science disciplines. The electives are not intended to provide an alternative to the existing Social Studies curriculum. Rather, they have been developed to meet diverse student interests, and add to the scope of the total curriculum.
The Social Sciences 20–30 program is currently under review.
