Canadian studies


A minor in Canadian studies is a logical choice if you would like to investigate the many facets of what it is to be Canadian. As you would expect, the courses come from a wide variety of disciplines, in turn reflecting of the interdisciplinary nature of Grenfell's programming. The minor can be used in combination with most of the majors at Grenfell Campus, and consists of eight courses from a wide selection of arts and social science areas.
