Canadian PSE institutions offer students wide range of cool courses

September 5, 2014

The Huffington Post has profiled what it says are the “coolest classes in Canada.” The article features courses at colleges and universities across the country, ranging from a class in brewing science at the University of King’s College in Halifax to a course on maritime piracy at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Many of the courses use popular subject matter to introduce students to concepts in mathematics, literature, history, or information technology. Multiple classes focus on Harry Potter, while others offer students the chance to study in-depth social media phenomena, winemaking, hockey, and even evil. Some classes give students the opportunity to study abroad: Memorial University’s “British Drama in Performance,” taught by former This Hour Has 22 Minutes star Mary Walsh, will have students taking in plays in London, UK, while McGill University’s “Hot Cities of the World Tour” offers “a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to Mongolia and South Korea.” Huffington Post
