International partnership results in new program
Published on January 25 2013
Brock University and the University at Buffalo, the State University of New York, have teamed up to create a graduate studies program that transcends borders.
The two universities, which will renew a partnership to foster joint research and educational initiatives, have established a master’s program in Canadian and American studies that will start in September.
The partnership is an obvious one for the two border universities, said Carol Merriam, the Faculty of Humanities’ Associate Dean, Graduate Studies and Research. The University at Buffalo (UB) is also a leader in international and Canadian studies.
“This is good for students and faculty to participate in programs that bring new perspectives, international perspectives,” Merriam said. “It has the potential to be a very stimulating program.”
