Hillcrest Social Sciences Department


The Canadian World Studies and Social Science department, located in the upper west wing of Hillcrest High School, boasts a wide array of courses including Geography, History, Civics, Canadian and International Law, Canadian and International Politics, an Introduction to Anthropology, Psychology & Sociology, Food & Nutrition, Deconstruction of Anti-Black Racism, Equity & Social Justice, and Challenge & Change in Society. Lessons focus on current issues complete with robust debates on social, political and economic trends. Staff and community members work together to deliver programs needed for current and future job markets. 

Students learn in diverse ways in our programs. We center the learners in authentic and experiential learning opportunities such as projects, guest speakers, field trips, special days and assemblies. Student voice is validated and their achievement is featured wherever possible in small and big occasions. The CWS and Social Sciences department and its wider school community provide ample space for all learning and growing potential. 

Feel free to contact us about our specific course codes as well as the clubs and extracurricular opportunities that we currently support.
