Social Science & Canada and World Studies


The Social Science and Canada and World Studies departments offer a wide variety of courses at Erin DHS.  Students can study: Canadian History and Geography, Civics, Law, Ancient Civilizations, Anthropology, Food and Nutrition, Parenting and Sociology, and World Issues.  Courses are offered in the Academic, Applied, Open, College, and University streams.

Our courses encourage students to become active and responsible global citizens.  Emphasis is placed on inquiry based learning and critical thinking.  Throughout the program students continually improve their ability to locate and critically examine information and communicate their thoughts through class presentations, discussions, formal essays and reports.
