Duke’s strong tradition in Canadian Studies dates back more than three decades. With first-rate faculty, excellent library resources, and strong administration support, the Duke Center for Canadian Studies has maintained its standing and produced scores of Ph.Ds., many of whom are now teaching at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada.
The Center for Canadian Studies organizes interdisciplinary conferences, lectures, and film series. Additionally, the Center offers undergraduate and graduate courses, which can be applied towards an undergraduate double major or minor, or a graduate certificate, on varying topics and themes, including Canadian history, literature, culture, security, energy, and U.S.-Canadian relations. The Center also invites prominent Canadian scholars, distinguished guests, government officials and business leaders to help promote the study and understanding of Canada. Furthermore, the Center supports participation of Duke professors and graduate students in conducting research and language study in Canada, and at scholarly conferences in the U.S. and Canada.
