Canadian and World Studies 

The Canadian and World Studies program encompasses five subjects: economics, geography, history, law, and politics. In studying these subjects, students learn how people interact with and within their social and physical environments today, and how they did so in the past.
 
The main goals of the Canadian and World Studies program are to help students to:
  • gain an understanding of the basic concepts of the subjects taught at this level, as a foundation for further studies in the discipline;
  • develop the knowledge and values they need to become responsible, active, and informed Canadian citizens in the twenty-first century;
  • develop practical skills (such as critical-thinking, research, and communication skills), some of which are particular to a given subject in Canadian and World Studies and some of which are common to all the subjects in the discipline;
  • apply the knowledge and skills they acquire in Canadian and World Studies courses to better understand their interactions with the natural environment; the political, economic, and cultural interactions among groups of people; the relationship between technology and society; and the factors contributing to society’s continual evolution.
