Canadian and World Studies, Social Sciences and Family Studies

Our world is rapidly changing. At Woburn, students learn to make connections between our past and present, and are preparing for our future. Courses in Canadian and World Studies provide students with exciting opportunities to develop the skills necessary to navigate our changing society. For example, they will develop their critical thinking skills, creativity and communication, and make connections to our own community. How did we get to the today we live in? To truly understand, and make informed choices, a critical understanding of History and Geography is necessary for informed citizenship in Canada and around the world.

In social sciences, humanities, and family studies courses students learn to explore human individual and group behaviour.  There is an emphasis on local and global mindedness and environmental responsibility. Students develop strong critical thinking and research skills they can apply to any career they choose in the future. Family studies courses also incorporate practical hands-on elements of learning such as cooking, sewing and work with children - capabilities that will be applicable to many careers in the future. Students about personal responsibility and how to make strong contributions to society
