The School of Canadian Studies is Carleton University’s locus of Canadian Studies. Important and urgent issues facing our society today intersect here.

Majoring in Canadian Studies allows students to develop interdisciplinary expertise. A minor in Canadian Studies is also an invaluable complement to a major in any traditional discipline. Minors are also available in Quebec Studies or Heritage and Conservation.

If you are interested in advanced studies in these areas, the School offers graduate programs at the Master’s and PhD levels. This includes a possible specialization in heritage conservation.

Interested in chatting with faculty and students about our programmes and courses? Email us, or drop by our home on the 12th floor of Dunton Tower. The views from here will astound you. The photo above is of one of the spectacular sunsets visible from the School’s offices.

Please note: As of July 1, 2023, Indigenous Studies faculty and undergraduate programs have moved to the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies, Dunton Tower, 13 Floor. For advising and program information related to Indigenous Studies, please contact:
