    North American Studies

    Applicable for the 2020-2021 academic year.

    See Department

    The North American Studies Program is designed to create an understanding of the complex regional forces shaping North America. Political, social, cultural, and economic ties among Mexico, the United States, and Canada are transforming all three countries, creating a region which is ever more closely related and interdependent.

    The North American Studies Program includes:
    1. A thematic minor.
    2. Block visitors from Mexico, Canada, and the United States.
    3. A North American institute during the Summer Session. This first part of this course is taught at Colorado College, followed by travel to Canada and Mexico.
