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, and incoming students will be assigned an advisor chosen from among the faculty members of the Canadian Studies program.
