Canadian Studies

MULTICULTURAL. IDENTITY. PERSPECTIVE.

Welcome to the Canadian Studies Program

This multidisciplinary major draws heavily on the humanities and the social sciences and is delivered by the Departments of History, Economics, English, Modern Languages, Indigenous Studies and Political Science.

What does it mean to be Canadian? What makes our society different from and similar to others around the world? How do we, as Canadians, express our identities? Understanding who we are as Canadians begins with a thorough knowledge of the places, people and ideas that form our daily lives. 

The Canadian Studies program gives you the flexibility to take courses in disciplines that interest you, while focusing on Canadian issues and Canada’s place in the world. You will be introduced to the history, people, industry and politics of Canada, as well as our unique institutions, policies and identities.

You will also be exposed to various social, religious, geographical, political, cultural, economic, educational and legal perspectives. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to study complex issues such as bilingualism and biculturalism, and examine their relevance to our modern, multicultural nation.
