Minor in Canadian Studies - Canadian Society and Politics CANA 3008   Canadian Society and Politics
This course about the nature of Canadian society has as its focus the study of structures and events which shape social and political organization in Canada. There is not only one way to understand Canadian society: generations of historians, political scientists and economists have provided valuable insights as to why Canadians have believed or acted or voted in one way or another. Sociology and Social Anthropology have helped to understand Canada in terms of contexts and conditions of life which have shaped the evolution of society as we know it. The course explores issues, events, discontents and groups which have produced the recurrent themes that underlie social life in Canada.
PREREQUISITES: One 1000 level SOSA course or FYP. RECOMMENDED: SOSA 2110 or another course on Canadian society and/or politics.
