Welcome to Canadian Studies at StFX, where students explore what defines Canada and how that makes our national culture unique. Students gain greater understanding of the country from an interdisciplinary perspective. It emphasizes the impact of multiculturalism, government structures, bilingualism, religion and history from a number of key vantage points. Once deciding on Canadian Studies as a degree focus (usually by the end of a student's second year), students can take courses in Canadian literature, politics, history, environmental and social justice issues. Popular choices include English 265 (Canadian Poetry and Prose) and Political Science 220 (Canadian Politics). Many students take Canadian Studies while pursuing major and honours degrees in programs like political science and history. As a minor, Canadian Studies often benefits students wishing to pursue careers in Canadian government - as decision makers, strategy analysts, journalism, communications and policy advisors.
