I was wondering....

Hi,

So... I was wondering "do you need calculus for social sciences(political science/sociology)"?

I am really confused because for UTSG requirement.... it says social science(including economics) requires calculus...

I don't have any maths right now and there are no adv function next semester for my school!!~
Will it work if I take Data instead or... other options... :(

Thank you!~ :colors:

Calculus is only required to major in economics, and recommended for international relations and cognitive science (perhaps some others I can't remember right now). You can still take some economics courses without calculus, but you need to take some math courses along with them if you want to major in it.

The international relations program at U of T is based on political science, history and economics. It's recommended, as it opens up more courses in the economics department.

What if I don't want to major in economics? Is it still recommended to take Data???

When I clicked the social science at UTSG, it always have (including economics) along with it..

thanks

You definitely don't need it for a social course. It isn't a bad idea to take the course if you can handle it because it looks good on your transcrpits, but it isn't vital.

You need to have taken grade 12 calculus (or equivalent university course) for a major or minor in psychology as well.
