Department of Humanities
The Humanities give people the tools they need to navigate the world they live. Students learn to reason about – humans and ask questions about our reality through a Humanities education. They also learn to cope with – subjective, complex, and frequently imperfect information critically, logically, and creatively.
The Humanities Department at Northland Secondary School offers a variety of subjects to help our students grow into – inquisitive and critical Humanities thinkers. Social studies, geography, and history are examples of these subjects. Our Upper Secondary Normal (Technical) students can now take Retail Operations to help them prepare for a relevant program of study at the Institute of Technical Education.
Programs of Interest
The Mask, which focused on personal interaction, meaningful connections, critical appreciation, and contemplation, was one of the centrepieces of the Secondary 3 Literature program.
