Global Studies

 

 

Global Studies offers the Canadian and World Studies as well as the Social Sciences and Humanities programs, respectively.  The Canadian and World Studies program encompasses such subjects as Civics, Economics, Geography, History, Law and Politics.  The Social Sciences and Humanities program presents such courses as Family Studies, Equity Studies, World Religions, and General Social Sciences.  In studying these subjects, students learn how people interact with, and within, their social and physical environments today, and how they did so in the past. Students develop the knowledge and values they need to become responsible, active, informed, and inclusive Canadian citizens in the twenty-first century.

 

In addition, students develop 21st Century Skills that incorporate creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, communication, citizenship, and character education.  Courses in Canadian and World Studies contribute significantly to students’ understanding of Canada’s heritage and its physical, social, cultural, governmental, legal, and economic structures and relationships.  While courses in the Social Sciences and Humanities focus on how individuals influence and are influenced by families, communities, cultures, institutions, and societies, and by ideas, norms, and values.   Students learn to apply and transfer these skills and understandings in other secondary school subjects, in their future studies, and in today’s rapidly changing world.
