DescriptionCanadian Studies majors acquire a range of skills from various disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences as they develop a sophisticated understanding of Canadian society.

Canadian Studies is a multidisciplinary program designed to introduce you to various perspectives on Canadian society - its history, political and legal systems, languages and cultures, for example. You are pushed to investigate Canada from the perspectives of disciplines in the Humanities (Art, English & Theatre, French, History) and the Social Sciences (Economics, Politics, Sociology). This will deepen your understanding of current social, cultural and political trends in Canada and their historical roots. You will also develop a breadth of research, reading and writing skills that will enable you to make a significant contribution to Canadian society. It is possible for you to earn a major in Canadian studies alone or to combine it with another discipline to receive a double major.
