What Is Woodsworth One?

What is Woodsworth One?

Woodsworth One offers students a small class experience for their first year of university. Students take two half-credit courses (one in the Fall and another in the Winter), and each section is capped at 25 students. The small class size provides rich opportunity for discussion and critical thinking. There is an emphasis on interactive learning, which can entail role-playing, simulations, debates, and small group activities, and the course material compliments subject matter in introductory first year courses. We also go on field trips, watch documentaries, and have guest speakers! Check out some previous Co-Curricular activities.

Students choose from one of two possible streams: Order & Disorder or Popular Culture Today (PCT will not be offered for the 2018-19 academic year). Both streams cover a range of topics from the Social Sciences & Humanities. To learn more, review our information page on Our Streams
