Welcome to the Canadian Studies Program web page. Here you will find information on the history of the program, members and events, and opportunities for BSU students and faculty.
The 2013 Canadian Studies Symposium: Northern Sovereignty
On Thursday, April 18 from 9:45 am to 12 noon, the Canadian Studies Program will present Northern Sovereignty, the 2013 Canadian Studies Symposium, in the Heritage Room of the Maxwell Library.
A panel of noted Canadian scholars from the University of Calgary, McGill University, the University of Vermont, and Université Laval will speak on such varied topics as Arctic shipping, the Inuit, Hydroelectricity, and Arctic security.
The Symposium is free of charge and open to the BSU Community and the public. Professors are welcome to bring their classes. Refreshments will be available.
The Symposium is sponsored by the Canadian Studies Program with the support of the Consulate General Canada in Boston; the Québec Délégation, Boston; and the Middle Atlantic and New England Council for Canadian Studies.
The Canadian Studies Minor
Differences in beliefs, traditions, laws, and language create constant misunderstandings, not only with countries far from our own but with our closest neighbors. Experts in the cultures, economies, and practices of other peoples are vital to successful international relations. To help meet the increasing need, the Canadian Studies Program offers a minor in Canadian Studies.
Requiring 18 credits, the minor provides BSU students with general knowledge of Canada and in-depth study of subjects such as the Canadian economy, literature, sociology, art, history and more. Students are treated to talks from Canadian writers, artists, business people and government representatives, as well as the expertise and firsthand knowledge of the Program's Canadian Studies professors.
Student Exchange Programs
The Canadian Studies Program offers 3 student exchange programs. BSU students from any major can immerse themselves in Canadian culture while studying at prestigious Canadian universities.
Nova Scotia/New England Exchange and
Quebec/New England Exchange
The Nova Scotia/New England Exchange and Quebec/New England Exchange Programs offer BSU students the opportunity to study at the Nova Scotia or Quebec university, respectively, of their choice for one semester or an entire academic year. Full time students who have completed at least one year of study at Bridgewater State University and have a GPA of 2.5 or higher are eligible for these programs. For more information and/or an application, visit the Office of Study Abroad .
Killam Fellowship to Study in Canada
The Killam Fellowship Exchange Program provides BSU students with two opportunities to study at the Canadian university of their choice for one semester or an entire academic year. The direct program offers an exchange with one of 12 participating Canadian universities in partnership with 13 U.S. institutions. The second offers a fellowship at any Canadian university. Students may apply for both simultaneously. A GPA of 3.5 or higher is preferred, but not necessary. Benefits include an award of US $10,000 for the full academic year or US$5,000 for one semester.
The Canadian Studies Program offers study tours and trips to Canada during the academic year and summer. Watch this page for updates.
The Maple Leaf Foundation Scholarship is awarded each year to a student who has participated in an exchange program in Canada. At this time, no application is necessary. The recipient is chosen by the Canadian Studies Program.
The Canadian Studies Program offers faculty members opportunities for research, course development, travel, conferences, papers and publications, and grants. Members meet several times a year to discuss the Program's development and activities, and are encouraged to attend Program functions. The Program is open to faculty of all disciplines, as well as administrators and staff.
