Program Overview

Canadian Studies will push you to investigate Canada from various perspectives. Your journey, as you study Canada, will take you into the humanities (Art, English and Theatre, French, History). You will also explore the social sciences (Economics, Politics, Sociology). You will deepen your understanding of current social, cultural and political trends in Canada. You will better understand their historical roots. Along the way, you will broaden your skills in research, reading and writing. With these skills, you will be able to make a significant contribution to Canadian society.

Acadia offers a personalized education. In Canadian Studies, you can explore what interests you. If you wish, you may choose courses that focus primarily on Atlantic Canada, or on Canadian culture, or on contemporary Canadian issues. It is possible to earn a major in Canadian Studies alone, or you may combine it with another discipline to receive a double major.

One of the first things you will notice when you arrive on campus is that you are a big part of your small classes. That increased level of contact and participation enhances your learning. It also improves your connection to professors and your fellow students inside the classroom and beyond.

Our experienced faculty will bring their research and opinions into the classroom. They will encourage you to share your ideas as you acquire knowledge and skills. You will develop the skills needed to address complex issues facing society and to understand the role Canada plays on the world stage.

Canadian Studies is taken as a special option in the Faculty of Arts. Your choice of available courses is wide. Because of that, you are advised to consult with the Dean of Arts or the Coordinator of the Canadian Studies Option when planning your program. This is to ensure that you will meet all degree requirements for the BA with Options.
