Laurier’s North American Studies program is the first of its kind in Ontario. It’s an interdisciplinary program, exploring the extent to which we can consider North America – including Canada, the United States and Mexico – as a distinct historical, cultural, political and economic entity. North American Studies explores the links that bind Canada, the United States and Mexico together in the North American region. This program brings together students and faculty interested in understanding North America as a distinct historical, cultural, political and economic entity, as well as Canada’s particular place on the continent. This program must be completed in combination with another Bachelor of Arts program, which allows you to complement your studies with knowledge and understanding of another subject area.
