SOST 50: Social Studies – Advanced Level is for students to upgrade their social studies skills.  Students begin by focusing on the emergence of Canada as an autonomous nation before World War I and changes in the Canadian identity up to the present day.  Students will also study the government of Canada and Canadian political trends as well as an analysis of global issues and how these affect Canadians.  The course aims to advance the learner toward five goals: global citizenship, broadened perspectives, critical thinking skills, analysis of values, and lifelong learning skills.

Upon completion of SOST 50, students are ready to enter SOST 60.

This course is equivalent to Social Studies 11.
