Social Sciences

TCS created the department of social sciences in an effort to acknowledge the obvious links between such disciplines as history, geography, politics, law and economics, as well as the humanities. The department offers a wide range of courses. At the intermediate level, students are required to take courses in civics, Canadian geography and Canadian history. At the senior level, students can select from a wide range of optional courses. All of the department’s courses focus on content and skills. Each course also employs a variety of learning and assessment strategies.

The primary focus of the department is to prepare TCS students for the challenges of a university education. The department also offers initiatives in experiential education. There is an optional travel education component in the Canadian history program. Students will have the opportunity, during the school year, to study the CHC2D course beyond the classroom. The course travels to Ottawa, Québec and to the battlefields and historical sites of Europe to discover Canadian history.
