Minor in Canadian Studies

Our Minor in Canadian Studies Allows You To:

  • Learn about the history, culture, and politics of Canada.
  • Participate in study abroad programs in Canada.
  • Enhance your career or graduate studies options.

Canadian Studies Minor (18 credits)

The 18 hour Canadian studies minor is a multidisciplinary program for students wishing to combine it with a major in another field. Students in such majors as history, political science, business, economics, environmental studies, French, and many others available at SUNY Plattsburgh have found this minor attractive to achieve their career aspirations and/or to pursue graduate studies.

The multidisciplinary foundation course CAS111 Introduction to Canada is a required beginning. Students then have the option of choosing from a variety of Canadian content courses in history, geography, humanities, politics and economics/business, and Quebec studies. Many of these courses are part of the general education program at SUNY Plattsburgh. An important benefit of the minor program is that some of the courses can be taken through study abroad in a Canadian/Quebec university.
