Canadian Studies

Canadian Studies is offered as a combined major. As a Canadian Studies co-major, you’ll confront the intersection of Canada’s rich history with culture, cultural policy, politics, economics and geography.

Our courses explore Canada from many angles. We take advantage of our geographic position to explore the impact of the border on culture and trade in Canada.

Canadian Studies students are in demand at home and abroad. Here in Canada, your skills are urgently needed to communicate with international businesses, politicians, tourists, and more. Your knowledge is sought after in the fields of education, law and the civil service.

Areas of concentration are available in Canadian Cultural Texts and Practices, Canadian Society and Politics, or Francophone Canada: Language and Culture.
