About Canadian Studies

About Canadian Studies

Canadian Studies provides students with a broad multidisciplinary view of the nature and development of Canada. Our programs—including Minor Concentration, Major Concentration, Honours, and Joint Honours Component, as well as a Minor Concentration in Indigenous Studies—are designed to encourage bilingualism, interdisciplinarity, and critical engagement. Our graduates go on to careers in the arts, government, the media, education, law, business, social service, and the university.

Students interested in pursuing Canadian Studies at the graduate level should consider the Joint Honours Component or the Honours program with a Canadian Studies component.
