This department is concerned with examining the history, function and purpose of educational institutions, spanning such disciplines as history, anthropology, sociology and philosophy and incorporating the study of comparative, community, intercultural and international education. For undergraduates, it offers coursework on the theories and methodologies regarding schools and good teaching, and for graduate students it helps develop expertise in one of the areas of study under its purview (PACCR, 1984). The Department supports the John Sandercock Library, the Centre for International Education and Development, and publication of the Canadian Journal of Native Education. Heads: 1961-1969 Bernal E.
