Undergraduate and graduate students from all faculties at Concordia as well as from other universities can register for the WSSR to earn credits toward the completion of their degree program.
You can take the WSSR credit course either as a Department of Political Science (POLI489/683/815) or a Simone de Beauvoir Institute (WSDB498) course.
To pursue the WSSR credit option (3 credits), you must sign up for and attend six days' worth of workshops as well as register for and successfully complete one of the following courses depending on the type of student that you are.
Students are required to attend only the days of the workshops that they select. Note that all workshops run from 9:00am-4:30pm.
For undergraduate students: Undergraduate students from all faculties are welcome to take the WSSR for credit. In order to be permitted to register for the WSSR credit option, you must have completed at least 30 credits toward your program.
For graduate students: Graduate students from all faculties are welcome to take the WSSR for credit. Be sure to consult with your Graduate Program Director (GPD) in order to confirm that you are eligible to receive credit toward your degree. Please email confirmation of eligibility from your GPD to firstname.lastname@example.org once you have completed and submitted your "Permission Request" form (see below). For a list of Concordia GPDs and GPAs see: http://www.concordia.ca/academics/graduate/program-contacts.html
To register for the WSSR credit option, you must first request and obtain permission from the Department of Political Science. To do so, simply complete the appropriate "Permission Request" form below.
