CANADIAN STUDIES ONLINE PROGRAM
The Canadian Studies Online Program was created in 2001 to promote our understanding our North American neighbor: who they are, what we share in common, and what makes us different in our increasingly interconnected and interdependent world. William Green has written about the origins and development of the Canadian Studies Online Program in his “Creating a Canadian Studies Online Program,” in the Fall 2004 Canadian Studies Update.
