The minor has been developed as an area study in response to faculty, student and regional interest. The national origins of a large portion of the population of Southeastern Massachusetts reflect strong Canadian ties from both the French and English communities.
The program is designed to supplement and give a multicultural dimension to one’s major through an in‑depth study of our northern neighbor. Courses in the minor are available in the following academic areas: history, literature, geography, anthropology, economics, sociology, foreign languages and political science.
Students may enter the Canadian Studies minor at any stage of their undergraduate careers; incoming students will be assigned an advisor chosen from among the faculty members of the Canadian Studies program.
