VII. MINOR(S)

Required Units (crs.): 24 minimum

Required Courses:
  • One semester in residence, enrolled full time in courses at the University of New Brunswick
  • Interdisciplinary Studies 245 or 246
  • UNB-XXX: Canada-U.S. Studies Seminar

Comment:
This minor will require one semester of full-time study at the University of New Brunswick, which will include UNB-XXX. Students from both schools who enroll in this joint minor will be required to take two semesters of a core Canada-U.S. Studies course that will be offered in alternate semesters by each institution, and will thus include both Canadian and U.S. students at each school each year. This core course will include a full range of cultural activities that both “home” and “visiting” students will participate in, increasing the sense of community among our minors at both institutions. One faculty member at each institution will coordinate the course; several other faculty members will present guest lectures, possibly including people from both institutuions via distance education technologies. We will encourage home visits among the students as well, reciprocated at both sites.

Electives:
A total of 18 credit hours are required, at least 9 at the upper dividsion, including: 9 hours in courses focusing on U.S. culture and 9 hours in courses focusing on Canadian culture.

Comment:
Any comparative Canada-U.S. course (other than the core courses) may be included in either division of the minor, but a student may not “count” the same course in both divisions. All minors must include at least one course from the Social Sciences and at least one course from the Arts and Humanities. At least on elective course must be completed at the other institution. Students may include in this minor courses used to fulfull general education requirements as well as courses in their major.

Courses not on the list below, but containing appropriate content, may be included in a student’s minor program using a curriculum modification form.
