Minor in Canadian Studies
As a Canadian Studies student you will examine emerging issues facing our country from within our borders and without, including our relationship with our closest neighbour - the United States - and our participation in the global sphere.
At the core of every Canadian Studies course are three questions:
What does it mean to be Canadian?
What makes our society different from and similar to others around the world?
What makes Canada work?
The program helps you understand the history, people, industry and politics of Canada, and our unique institutions, policies and identities. You will be exposed to a broad approach that considers many perspectives:
The issues you will learn about in Canadian Studies include:
Canada's foreign policy, political system and national institutions
Canada's diverse regional and multicultural identities
The responsibilities and expectations of citizenship in Canada
Canadian arts and culture
Canadian law and public policy
Natural resources and the environment
National and regional trade and development
You are also encouraged to study a second language such as French or a Native language.
You may pursue a five-year program which leads to both the Bachelor of Arts in Canadian Studies degree and the Bachelor of Education (Master of Teaching Program) degree.
