School of Canadian Studies



As novelist and essayist John Ralston Saul put it, our “strange peculiarities” help make Canada not only unique and exciting but also a complex and “perpetually incomplete experiment.” When you study Canadian Studies at Carleton University, you’ll be engaging in a detailed investigation of this “incomplete experiment” and Canada’s place in the Americas and the world.
