Understanding what lies beyond many recent local, national and international events such as the global thirst for oil, arctic sovereignty, the politics of medical experiementation, the Truth & Reconciliation Commission, the war in Afghanistan, and the changing roles of women all require history.
Students learn how Canada and the world became as they are today through analyzing written texts, oral histories, primary documents, artifacts and material culture. From the ancient world to the present day, students can examine a range of subjects and periods, while also exploring a variety of thematic approaches to the study of history, social history, medical history, science history, environmental history, political history and the history of sexualities.
