Program Description

POLS 301- Politics and Travel (No Prerequisite)

This course will provide students with firsthand exposure to the Canadian political system, as well as an on-location guide to formative events in Canada's early history as a British colony. The tour will cover a 900-mile stretch of eastern Canada, traveling by air, land and sea, and exploring more than 250 years of Canadian history. The readings and lectures will focus on 1) the contemporary governing structures in Canada, 2) the formation of what would become modern Canada beginning in the late eighteenth century, and 3) the history of Canadian- American relations. this course will apply the disciplines of comparative politics, international relations, and historical inquiry in a way that aims to enrich students' understanding of global politics generally, not just in North America.
