Canadian Studies / Études canadiennes

Canadian Studies / Études canadiennes


Set yourself apart by studying with leading authorities about Canadian topics, including our national culture, environmental history, labour issues in Quebec and endangered Aboriginal languages.

Glendon's liberal arts environment is the perfect complement to its Canadian Studies program, and easily allows for cross-discipline research and study. If you're considering government or public sector work, gain a competitive edge with a bilingual degree and an understanding of the country in its various dimensions: political and legal systems, languages and cultures, history and Canada’s position in the global arena.

Apply your learning at the annual Crossing Borders Conference, support government officials and scholars from both sides of the Canadian-US border or get debate experience on current Canadian issues at provincial Canadian Studies conferences.

Vous étudierez avec d’éminents spécialistes les enjeux auxquels fait face le Canada, notamment la culture nationale, l’histoire environnementale, les enjeux liés à la main-d’œuvre au Québec, ou les langues autochtones menacées d’extinction.

L'environnement d'arts liberaux de Glendon va parfaitement avec le programme d'Études canadiennes et facilite la recherche et travail pluridisciplinaires. Si vous envisagez de travailler dans la fonction publique, donnez-vous un avantage en obtenant un diplôme bilingue qui vous permettra de mieux comprendre la complexité de notre pays dans toutes ses dimensions : organisation politique et judiciaire, langues et cultures, histoire et le rôle du Canada sur le plan international.

Utilisez vos connaissances lors du colloque annuel « Crossing Borders » appuyé par des représentants du gouvernement et des universitaires du Canada et des États-Unis, ou développez vos compétences pour débattre d’enjeux contemporains au Canada, en participant à des conférences sur les Études canadiennes organisées dans la province.
