Program Information

School:Carleton University - Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research
Degree:Post-diploma
Field of Study:Regional Studies (U.S., Canadian, Foreign)
Description:The interdisciplinary Northern Studies graduate program at Carleton emphasizes northern environments and societies, and the policies that are developed to govern them. We offer two Graduate Diplomas (Type 2 or 3) for current graduate students and working professionals, as well as a Master of Arts and Master of Science degree.

All of the programs are designed to give interdisciplinary training and experience in Northern Studies and all students are required to begin their studies with a field course of about one week. This is a residential field course that will take place too far from Ottawa for daily commuting. The introductory field course is a prerequisite for the core courses that are integral to the degrees and diplomas.
