May@Mac – Saturday, May 11th, 2013!

This year, May@Mac will be held on Saturday, May 11th, 2013 in Gilmour Hall Room 111 from 9:00AM until 2:00PM. This is an opportunity for students in high school to explore McMaster and the programs that are offered by each faculty.

The purpose of May@Mac is for students to explore their own particular interests in the Social Sciences by being able to experience and interact with the Faculty, as well as students and staff that are a part of the many programs! Some of the displays include Anthropology, Economics, Geography, Health, Aging and Society, Indigenous Studies, Labour Studies, Political Science, Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour, Religious Studies, Social Psychology, Social Work, Sociology and Social Sciences/Mohawk certificates.

Being able to speak to students in the Social Sciences first-hand gives a more personal meaning towards the passion and interests shared by the students. The main people that will be present are members of Blu Cru – the Social Sciences representatives – and the McMaster Social Sciences Society Executives; students will be able to hear about opportunities as to how to get involved within the Faculty of Social Sciences and make their experience here at McMaster that much better. The McMaster Social Sciences Society Executive will also have a Faculty Showcase present at May@Mac.

Mac@Mac presents the variety of services and opportunities that are available for Social Sciences students during the course of their university career. These services will help to enhance students’ education and act as a jump start to their career post-graduation. Services include Experiential Education, internships, placements, career planning and international exchanges.
