The Centre for Canadian Studies promotes the study and understanding of Canada from a comprehensive cultural, social, political and economic perspective, emphasizing both historical context and contemporaneous development. The centre aims to fully utilize programs developed by other academic departments that contain relevant Canadian subject matter. The centre itself offers limited interdisciplinary courses that are designed to integrate knowledge from several relevant disciplines.

For those with a predominant interest in Canadian studies, a major and honors program is provided. However, the centre also accommodates students whose primary interest is in one of the regular disciplines. Such students may enrol in a joint major or honors program, combining specialization in the department of their choice with complementary work in Canadian studies.

A certificate in French Canadian studies is also offered. This may be taken concurrently with, and as part of, specialization in Canadian studies at the honors, major or minor level, or it may be taken independent of such specialization. Details are given at the end of this section.

Major Program

The particular requirements are as follows. Students should see "General Information". for additional information.

Lower Division Requirements

Students must complete all of

CNS 160-3 The Social Background of Canada

CNS 210-3 Foundations of Canadian Culture

HIST 102-3 Canada Since Confederation

and one of

CNS 280-3 Canadian Political Economy

POL 223-3 Canadian Political Economy

and one of

POL 221-3 Introduction to Canadian Government

POL 222-3 Introduction to Canadian Politics

Students must demonstrate a working knowledge of French determined by completing FREN 101, or the former FREN 298, or equivalent, or by passing a placement exam at this level.

Upper Division Requirements

one of

CNS 481-3 Special Regional Topics

CNS 490-5 The Canadian Intellectual Tradition

CNS 491-3 Technology and Canadian Society

At least three other 300-400 level CNS courses must be completed plus 18 additional hours in upper division Canadian studies/Canadian content courses. No more than 12 hours of this requirement may be from curriculum of any single department or program other than Canadian studies.

Distribution Requirements

To ensure adequate breadth of knowledge, students must complete at least eight required key courses from at least five departments having courses recognized as carrying Canadian studies credit. These courses can be both upper and lower division.

Honors Program

To qualify for Canadian Studies honors, students must take the same lower division courses and meet the same distribution requirements that apply to the Canadian Studies major, and must also complete the following courses.

Lower Division Requirements

HIST 101-3 Canada to Confederation

POL 221-3 Introduction to Canadian Government

POL 222-3 Introduction to Canadian Politics

Upper Division Requirements

CNS 490-5 The Canadian Intellectual Tradition

CNS 491-3 Technology and Canadian Society

CNS 495-5 Canadian Studies Honors Essay

At least two other 300-400 level CNS courses must be completed, plus 33 additional upper division credit hours in Canadian studies/Canadian content. No more than 18 hours of this requirement may be from curriculum of any single department or program other than Canadian studies.

Honors students must demonstrate functional bilingual English/French proficiency by completing FREN 202.

See below in the Joint Honors Program regarding level of entry and course challenge procedures.

Minor Program

Students must complete nine credit hours of Canadian studies lower division courses which must include two of

CNS 160-3 The Social Background of Canada

CNS 210-3 Foundations of Canadian Culture

CNS 280-3 Canadian Political Economy

Also, 15 hours of upper division Canadian studies/Canadian content course work are required, at least one of which must be a CNS 300-400 level course.

Students taking the Canadian studies minor with a major, minor or honors in another department or program may not count any Canadian content course being used by that department or program as part of their Canadian studies minor requirement. A working knowledge of French is recommended.

Students pursuing a Canadian studies minor do not have to satisfy any key course requirements.

Joint Major Programs

Joint majors with the Centre for Canadian Studies are available with the Departments of Archaeology, Criminology, Economics, English, Geography, History, Political Science, and Sociology and Anthropology, and with the School of Communication and the Faculty of Business Administration.

with the except of a joint major in history (see "Joint Major in Canadian Studies and History".), students must complete all requirements for a major in Canadian studies and the other subject. Any lower division course that counts toward the separate requirements for Canadian studies and for the other subject may be counted towards both. Up to 12 upper division credits in both Canadian studies and the other subject may be counted toward the upper division credit requirements of both. A joint major in Canadian studies and another subject that also specifies 30 upper division credit hours will therefore require a total of 48 upper division credit hours in the two subjects (30 Canadian studies plus 30 in the other subject minus 12 overlap).

Joint major students are required to complete all the key courses listed for the department in which they are pursuing the other major.

Joint Major in Canadian Studies and Business Administration and/or Economics

For a joint major with business administration and economics, there are three joint major combinations with Canadian studies; business administration, economics or business administration and economics combined. For the latter combination, a student must meet all of the requirements for the major in business administration and economics as well as those for the Canadian studies major.

The total upper division credit requirement for the joint major in Canadian studies and business administration and economics is 69 credit hours (30 Canadian studies plus 26 business administration plus 25 economics minus 12 overlap with Canadian studies).

Joint Major in Canadian Studies and Sociology and/or Anthropology

There are three joint major combinations of Canadian studies with sociology and anthropology. The total upper division credit requirement for this is 58 credit hours (30 Canadian studies plus 20 sociology plus 20 anthropology minus 12 overlaps).

Joint Major in Canadian Studies and History

Students must complete all requirements for major in Canadian Studies plus 24 credit hours of upper division history courses, of which 12 credit hours must be earned at the 400 level. All upper division courses must be distributed within groups 1, 2 and 3. Students must take at least two courses from any two groups, and at least one from the remaining group. For a description of the three groups, see "Major Program".

Joint Honors Program

Students complete all requirements for a Canadian studies major and honors in the other subject. Any lower division course that counts toward the separate Canadian studies requirements and the other subject may be counted towards both. Up to 15 upper division credit hours in both Canadian studies and the other subject may count towards the upper division requirements of both. Joint honors in Canadian studies and another subject that require 50 upper division credit hours will therefore require 65 upper division credit hours in the two subjects (30 CNS plus 50 in the other subject minus 15 overlap). For joint honors with business administration and economics, 75 upper division credit hours are required (30 CNS plus 30 ECON plus 30 BUS minus 15 overlap with CNS). For joint honors with sociology or anthropology, 75 upper division credit hours are required (30 CNS plus 28 sociology plus 28 anthropology plus four additional sociology or anthropology minus 15 overlap with Canadian studies).

Students must also complete the key overlap courses specified below for the Canadian studies joint major and the other subject, as well as the French language qualification specified above. To determine the level of entry in the French language program, students must take a Department of French placement test. Students may challenge FREN 151, 201, 202 and 206. Please see "Course Challenge"..

Extended Minor Program

This program consists of the lower division requirements for a major and the upper division requirements for a minor. Certain other criteria may be set by individual departments. Students must have their program approved by the advisor.

Canadian Studies Courses

There are two categories of courses that carry credit in Canadian studies. `Internal' Canadian studies (CNS) courses are multidisciplinary or may be special topics courses, and are unique to the Canadian studies curriculum. Please see "Canadian Studies"..

The other category comprises courses of predominantly Canadian content which are offered by other departments and programs. These are listed below. Some of these courses are considered key and are identified at the bottom of each departmental listing.

Courses marked with an asterisk (*) may be taken for Canadian studies credit only with approval of the director of the Centre for Canadian Studies.

Additional courses may be approved for Canadian studies credit while others may be dropped. Check with the Centre for Canadian Studies for a current list.
