ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
OUR PROFESSORS & INSTRUCTORS
The Department of Multidisciplinary Studies (MDS) at Glendon enables students to
pursue bilingual degree programs which go beyond traditional departmental
disciplinary boundaries. At present, there are two formalized programs within
MDS: Drama Studies, and Environmental and Health Studies. In addition to the
two formalized areas of specialization, students have the option of pursuing an
Individualized Program of Study. Whatever the particular program chosen, MDS
affords students an educational process which combines intellectual rigour with the
pleasure of discovery and an enthusiasm for approaching academic matters in a
creative and challenging fashion.

MULTIDISCIPLINARY STUDIES / GENERAL EDUCATION 2015 - 2016
WHY STUDY INDIVIDUALIZED
STUDIES? WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH
AN INDIVIDUALIZED STUDIES
DEGREE?
Students who major or minor in multidisciplinary studies may (in consultation with
the department Chair) construct programs of their own that draw on the courses
and resources of the various departments of Glendon (including, of course,
multidisciplinary studies itself). Some of the most successful areas of concentration
in recent years have been comparative literature, medieval and Renaissance
studies, religious studies, social and political thought, 19th century studies, and
language and society. Whatever the particular program chosen, MDS affords
students an education process which combines intellectual rigour with the pleasure
of discovery and an enthusiasm for approaching academic matters in a creative and
challenging fashion. The Individualized Studies is suitable as a pre-professional
program preparing students for faculties of law and education, as well as for work
in communication, administration, government, and the corporate world. At the
same time, this program can also prepare students for graduate studies in related
fields.
The Department of Multidisciplinary Studies offers students the opportunity to
engage their intellectual curiosity by drawing upon a variety of academic resources.
It is worth noting that one does not create a multidisciplinary approach merely by
juxtaposing individual courses from two or more disciplines. Rather, what is
sought is a true integration or synthesis of methodologies and knowledge from
separate academic areas to create a program of study which is at once critical and
innovative.
MULTIDISCIPLINARY STUDIES / GENERAL EDUCATION 2015 - 2016
PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
For detailed program requirements, please refer to the Undergraduate Calendar
applicable to your year of entry.
Should you wish to pursue an Individualized Program of Study,
1.
2.
Please submit in writing to the Chair of MDS:
a)
the proposed area of your choice specifying its multidisciplinary aspects
b)
the courses from the Undergraduate Calendar (Glendon) you feel would
constitute the core/related courses for your chosen program of study.
However, in order to determine which courses are being offered in the
current academic year, please consult the Course Timetable, while keeping
in mind the Degree Requirements. Your list of courses will need to be
updated each year.
Request an appointment with the Chairperson of the Department to discuss
and obtain approval of your program.
Please note that at Glendon it is not possible to specialize in ‘’Humanities’’ or in
‘’Social Sciences.’’ Students must define a specific Individualized Studies according
to the procedures outlined here.

MULTIDISCIPLINARY STUDIES / GENERAL EDUCATION 2015 - 2016
INDIVIDUAL STUDIES / HONOURS
THESIS GUIDELINES
An Individual Studies or Honours Thesis permits students to create and pursue a
course of their own devising. Individual studies courses may be taken at the 3000
or 4000 level.
Students in Multidisciplinary Studies also have the option of doing an independent
reading and/or research course, which will be taken at the third or fourth year level
under the guidance of one full-time member of the faculty. Please note: All
“Individual Studies” courses in Multidisciplinary Studies are subject to specific
regulations which the Office of Multidisciplinary Studies will supply upon request.
Students must consult with the department before registering in these courses.
Since there is no assurance that a proposed project will be accepted, the student is
urged to enroll in an alternative course in addition to the proposed “Reading
Courses” until a decision is made concerning his/her proposal.
COURSES TAKEN ELSEWHERE AT
YORK
Glendon students may take courses at other York faculties to fulfill either their
General Education requirements or their MDS degree requirements with
permission of the Department.
The York University Senate regulation stipulates that a student must take at least
half the total number of credits required for his/her major at his/her home faculty.
MULTIDISCIPLINARY STUDIES / GENERAL EDUCATION 2015 - 2016
GENERAL EDUCATION
The Multidisciplinary Studies Department has a two-fold undergraduate
responsibility. First, it is a degree granting department with majors and minors.
Second, the department houses the four divisions of General Education:
Humanities, Modes of Reasoning, Natural Science and Social Science.
Humanities courses generally combine the subject matter and methodologies of at
least two of the "humane" disciplines taught at Glendon: Literature, Philosophy,
and History. Social Science courses do the same for the "social sciences":
Economics, Linguistics, Psychology, Sociology, and also History. Natural Science
courses draw from the physical and biological sciences; our courses often
demonstrate the interrelationship of science and other disciplines, and some of
them focus specifically on the history or philosophy or social context of science.
Modes of Reasoning focuses principally on the forms of reasoning and inquiry, on
deductive and inductive logic. It invites reflection on these forms of thought and
investigates their interconnections.
Courses at 1000 and 2000 level offer an introduction to university studies and to
the interrelatedness of the disciplines through the study of particular problems
or time periods. Courses at the 3000 and 4000 level enable students to relate
their course work in their discipline/specialization to course work in related
fields.
Every student at Glendon must complete before graduating the equivalent of at
least one full course in three of the four General Education divisions: Humanities,
Modes of Reasoning, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences. By taking courses in
three of the four available areas, students have the opportunity to explore methods
and problems in a range of fields and disciplines thus developing flexibility and
breadth.
The General Education requirement is designed within the bilingual liberal arts
curriculum of Glendon to provide balance and enrichment to studies in the
student's chosen discipline or disciplines.
Please note that a General Education course crosslisted as a departmental course
may be used to satisfy both the General Education and the departmental
requirement.

Ce cours cherche à mettre en évidence les fondements philosophiques de la pensée
occidentale par l’étude d’œuvres marquantes. Le choix des textes au programme
vise plusieurs buts à la fois :
Initier les étudiants à l’histoire de la philosophie occidentale; les sensibiliser en
même temps, aux problèmes philosophiques et aux solutions classiques qui y ont
été apportées ; mettre ainsi en lumière les sources et les présuppositions de nos
propres façons de penser (autant en science qu’en morale ou en politique) et mettre
aussi en lumière, plus particulièrement, les rapports qu’ont entretenus la
philosophie et les sciences auxquelles elle a donné naissance.
En plus d’une certaine dose de culture générale, les étudiants devraient en principe
obtenir ainsi des repères leur permettant de mieux se situer dans leur milieu
culturel et de mieux apprécier la place qu’ils occupent dans le monde d’aujourd’hui.

1. Discrimination and Reverse Discrimination. Many people agree that the past
practices in education, hiring, and housing were morally wrong because they
were racially discriminatory, because they used race as a basis for denying
equality of treatment to blacks, people of colour, and aboriginals. Does it follow
that using race as a criterion is always wrong? Are Canadian practices, for
example, which permit special voting privileges to aboriginals discriminatory?

2. Understanding Justice and the Abolition of Punishment. Two of the main
justifications for punishment will be reviewed: the retributive theory, in which
people get what they deserve, and the deterrent theory, in which deterrence is
thought to justify punishment. The idea that justice must be “restorative” and
“reconciliatory” underlies proposals which would abolish conventional
punishment. We will examine this idea, using as a focus the South African Truth
and Reconciliation Commission.

3. Women and the Quality of Life: Justice and Gender. We will discuss what is
meant by the “quality of life” and what is required in terms of social policy for
improving it, and whether there are gendered norms for the assessment of
women’s quality of life. Because people’s desires can be limited and warped
through deprivation, the criterion of utility or satisfaction is problematic; second,
issues of tradition and cultural relativity must be resolved in order to determine
whose beliefs and judgements should be the source of the measures to be used by
policy-makers.

MODR 2640 6.00 (EN) LOGIC
Logic, in the philosophical tradition, is the study of the general principles which
make certain patterns of argument reasonable and others unreasonable. The focus
will be on acquiring methods to assist us in appraising our reasoning as correct or
incorrect, valid or invalid. These methods will, of course, vary with the area of logic
being studied. The course will cover propositional logic, predicate logic and the
logic of relations. As well, we will pursue those philosophical issues which arise
naturally in the study of logic.
Note: This course may be taken to satisfy the lower level Modes of Reasoning
requirement.
Note: This course is particularly recommended for students interested in Law
school.

Adjudication; Feminist Approaches to Rule of Law; Law as a protector of individual
liberty, and as a tool of democratic self-rule.

philosophie et les sciences auxquelles elle a donné naissance.

1. Discrimination and Reverse Discrimination. Many people agree that the past
practices in education, hiring, and housing were morally wrong because they
were racially discriminatory, because they used race as a basis for denying
equality of treatment to blacks, people of colour, and aboriginals. Does it follow
that using race as a criterion is always wrong? Are Canadian practices, for
example, which permit special voting privileges to aboriginals discriminatory?

“reconciliatory” underlies proposals which would abolish conventional
punishment. We will examine this idea, using as a focus the South African Truth

3. Women and the Quality of Life: Justice and Gender. We will discuss what is
meant by the “quality of life” and what is required in terms of social policy for
improving it, and whether there are gendered norms for the assessment of
women’s quality of life. Because people’s desires can be limited and warped
through deprivation, the criterion of utility or satisfaction is problematic; second,
issues of tradition and cultural relativity must be resolved in order to determine
whose beliefs and judgements should be the source of the measures to be used by
policy-makers.

Adjudication; Feminist Approaches to Rule of Law; Law as a protector of individual
liberty, and as a tool of democratic self-rule.
