Although Canada and the United States share a great deal of history, the world’s longest undefended border, and the world’s largest bilateral trading relationship, the full significance of this relationship is not widely recognized in the United States. By learning more about the similarities and differences between Canada and the United States, students not only come to a much greater understanding of their northern neighbor, but they also learn a lot about their own country and how it is perceived by one of its key allies.
Our minor program provides a stimulating blend of courses from history, French, geography, and more.

Our minor program consists of 18 course credits, and many of our minor students spend time abroad. See our catalogue requirements for the Canadian Studies minor.
