Canadian Studies is an interdisciplinary exploration of the concepts and practices of "Canadianness". 

Through a  critical examination of themes such as Sovereignty, Nationalism, Indigeneity, Regionalism, Multiculturalism, Immigration, Labour, and Peacekeeping, as well as by exploring representations of Canada in film, art, and literature, Canadian Studies allows for a greater understanding of the diverse and often contested meanings of the Canadian experience and Canadian citizenship.
