This program includes a Major Research Paper option and is intended to be completed in twelve months. A thesis option for only exceptional circumstances is available upon consultation with and permission from the Graduate Program Director.
The program will provide international experience to participating Brock students, and will include a joint degree from the State University of New York, University at Buffalo.
Twelve months (September to August).
The new joint Master of Arts in Canadian-American Studies is offered between Brock University and the University at Buffalo (UB), which is part of the SUNY system. This multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary program will equip students with the necessary tools to consider the interplay between discipline-specific topics and broader issues relevant to the Canadian, American, or broader North American landscape. Students will have the opportunity to explore their field of research from both a Canadian and an American perspective. Students will undertake comparative analysis of social, economic, political, and cultural issues in the two nations. The courses will be taught by tenured (and tenure-track) faculty in the Humanities and Social Sciences at both universities.
Of particular interest is the program’s focus on interdisciplinary research in the area of borders and boundaries. The relevance of this concentration is evidenced by the geographical location of the institutions and by the existing cooperation between the two universities.
