Overview

Canadian studies seeks to analyze and explain the Canadian experience and to explore Canada’s place in the world through Canadian-centred courses in a number of disciplines.

Mount Allison’s Canadian studies program is one of the oldest in the country.

The program explores Canadian issues and realities, such as the country’s vast and varied geography, regional distinctions, history and politics, public policy, culture, economy, the environment, Indigenous peoples, bilingualism, and multiculturalism.

Canadian studies courses at Mount Allison address some of the most pressing topics in contemporary society: diversity, community, cultural literacy, and national identities.

In the first year you will take introductory courses that examine contemporary Canadian issues and institutions as well as Canadian culture and identity.

Second-year course options include cultural diversity, media and pop culture, regionalism, and Canadian foodways, while in the third year you can explore gender in Canada, Canadian-American relations, and contemporary issues.

Your fourth year provides opportunities for independent studies, seminars, and advanced studies in courses such as Culture of the Maritimes, Aboriginal Political and Legal Issues, and Imagining Canada.
