CANADIAN AND WORLD STUDIES
Canadian and World Studies courses in the Upper School enable students to become responsible, active citizens within the diverse communities to which they belong. They also enable students to explore fundamental questions and ideas about human nature and the human condition.
Courses are designed to assist students in developing a sense of place (What is where, why there, and why care?), developing a sense of time (Who are we? Who came before us? How have we changed?), developing a sense of responsibility (Where do I belong? How can I contribute?), and developing a sense of fairness and justice (What are our rights and responsibilities? How does society create its rules? What structures can people use to address conflict?)
Students have the option of taking courses within the categories of geography, history, law, politics, and social sciences and humanities.
