School of Social Innovation Programs

Many aspects of our programs make them distinct from those of other schools, namely the combination of human sciences and management; the articulation between theory and practice; the presence of a collaborative workspace (the Social Innovation Workshop); an innovative pedagogical approach; and a commitment to social justice and transformation.

Baccalaureate in Social Innovation (BA)

A four-year undergraduate program that offers a solid foundation in human sciences and management. These courses will allow you to understand the issues facing society, to know which solutions are most pertinent, but also how to launch an organization, how to balance your budget, how to find collaborators, and how to effectively manage projects. Two years of courses are taught in blocks. We leave the classroom to see what’s happening in the field, we work on projects at the Mauril-Bélanger social innovation workshop, we work intensely. A program conceived for those who want to build or work for an organization that changes the world.
