Earn your minor in Canadian Studies at King's

King's minor program in Canadian Studies provides students with a well rounded selection of courses pertaining to Canadian society, culture, politics, history and economics. The minor introduces students to the deeper undercurrents and driving forces behind our current life in Canada such as federalism, colonialism and the country's incredibly diverse landscape. The program also introduces students to some of the ongoing challenges facing Canada, the nation's distinct pluralist culture and traditions, short yet rich history, and the privileges and responsibilities enjoyed by those living here today.

The Canadian Studies minor is the perfect compliment to any degree program—particularly for students looking to secure employment in public life, or business in the profit and not-for-profit sectors.
