Description:Canadian Studies is concerned with the creation and evolution of Canadian identities, the forces influencing them, and the manner in which these identities are expressed. In the Canadian Studies program, you will explore the origins and transformations of the multiple Canadian identities that have been shaped by history, economics, geography, and socio-political developments in Canada. You will also examine the western and northern struggle for recognition and influence within the larger Canadian identity, and look at Canadian identities in the context of globalization. The program encompasses a wide range of topics, including the historic and contemporary identities of various Canadian cultural groups; the role of government in structuring Canadian identity; the influences of current American culture and the French and British colonial past; the impact of geography; Canadian cultural expression through literature, art and architecture; as well as the historical and contemporary significance of the immigrant experience. The Co-operative Education version of the program will give you the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in up to four paid work terms of three months each.
