United States Studies is a program for anyone who wants to develop an in-depth understanding of the history and culture of Canada’s nearest neighbor.  While everyone will take an introductory and capstone course, students can choose to explore particular areas such as music, film, art, literature, history, and political science. Those enrolled will have the opportunity to investigate rock n’ roll, Hollywood cinema, African-American history, the novels of Hemingway and Steinbeck, and congressional politics. Students will learn new approaches and discover how to bring together material from different fields.

Why choose this program?

The study of the United States sheds light on a nation that has had a great impact on Canadian development, global politics and many fields of culture.

The program brings together many disciplines and provides new approaches to the analysis of diverse materials.
