Canadian-American Studies Program, University Interdisciplinary Programs

30 credits

Introduction

Canada and the United States are the two most interdependent countries in the world. Virtually all the Fortune 500 companies do business with Canada, as do all large government agencies. Additionally, as the two countries share a continent and its ecosystems, most U.S. environmental organizations have a Canadian presence and interests. The Canadian-American Studies minor provides an overview of Canada and Canada-U.S. relations that will add depth to students’ major programs.

Why Consider a Canadian-American Studies Minor?

The Canadian-American Studies minor combines well with other majors and minors to add depth and international expertise. Examples include combining Canadian-American Studies with: environmental science and policy, international business, geography, anthropology, political science, marketing, communications, history and foreign languages.
