This two week study 'beyond the U.S.' program, offers students a practical, interdisciplinary opportunity to study Canadian history, social conditions, environmental issues, economy and cultural values. We will be examining these issues in a broader North American and global context. The highlight of this class is living in Canada for twelve days and being able to observe, listen and talk to Canadians about their social, cultural, political and economic life. In the Province of British Columbia, student will be exposed to an active daily program of study, which will include lectures from Canadian scholars, visits to government and non-government organizations, visits to art galleries, museums, and other sites of historical and cultural significance. By the end of this class, students will gain a comparative and critical perspective on the United States culture, politics, society and economy.
This program is open to undergraduate and graduate students.
