Why Canadian Studies at Dalhousie?

Through the Canadian Studies program’s interdisciplinary approach, you’ll get an overview of what makes Canada the country it is—and who its people are—in terms of history, politics, culture, and society.

In this era of globalized economies and a growing sense of international citizenship and responsibilities, Canadian Studies programs are enjoying something of a renaissance. Knowing ourselves and understanding our place in the world as Canadians remains a legitimate – even urgent – task for students and scholars alike.
