Canadian studies seeks to analyze and explain the Canadian experience and to explore Canada’s place in the world through Canadian-centred courses in a number of disciplines.

The program explores Canadian issues and realities, such as the country’s vast and varied geography, regional distinctions, history and politics, public policy, culture, economy, the environment, Indigenous peoples, bilingualism, and multiculturalism.

In first year you will take introductory courses that examine contemporary Canadian issues and institutions as well as Canadian culture and identity.

Second year course options include cultural diversity, Canadian-American relations, and regionalism, while in third year you can explore Indigenous Canada, gender in Canada, and contemporary issues.
