Introduction

Canada and the United States share a continent and are linked by deep economic ties, several common historical experiences, and many cultural similarities; they are also marked by real and important differences. The Canadian-American Studies minor provides an overview of Canada and Canada-U.S. relations so students may better understand these similarities and differences and how they affect key cultural, environmental, and economic issues in North America today and in the future.

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.
