About Canadian Studies

The program strives to enhance awareness of Canada and of Canadian issues. The program seeks to highlight issues of bi-lateral trade, Canada-U.S. border issues, cultural policy, multiculturalism in Canada, Canadian values and society, environmental and energy issues, and security cooperation through courses in the Canadian Studies minor, workshops, seminars, internships, exchanges, and faculty research.

The program is committed to fostering a greater appreciation of the role of Canada in the world community and Idaho’s special relationship with western Canadian Provinces.
