WHAT IS CANADIAN STUDIES?

Coordinator: Dr. Stephen Henderson stephen.henderson@acadiau.ca
Programs Offered: Bachelor of Arts with Honours (BAH), Bachelor of Arts (BA), Minor
 

Canadian Studies is a multidisciplinary program highlighting various perspectives on Canadian society – its history, political and legal systems, languages and cultures, for example. Students are challenged to investigate Canada from the perspectives of disciplines in the Humanities (Art, English & Theatre, French, History) and the Social Sciences (Economics, Politics, Sociology) to deepen their understanding of current social, cultural and political trends in Canada and their historical roots. Students also develop a breadth of research, reading and writing skills. Students can major in Canadian Studies alone or can combine it with another discipline to receive
a double major.
