Interdisciplinary Program with an Impressive Concentration of Outstanding Scholars

As an interdisciplinary program, York University's Canadian Studies Program allows students to study with an impressive concentration of outstanding scholars, making connections between different fields of knowledge in the Humanities, Communications, Social, Physical, and Environmental Sciences, and the Fine Arts.

Using this breadth, the Canadian Studies Major can engage in their community at the local, regional, and national levels, and will be well-able to devise solutions to the problems of a 21st century Canada. Graduates can expect to become familiar with Canadian issues in a wide variety of contexts, including Canadian-American relations, Literature, Canada's First Nations, the Environment, Media and Culture, Social Justice, Political Science and Canadian Identity.
