Arctic Minors

We are very excited to announce the first generation of the new Arctic Studies minors! The purpose of this minor is for undergraduates to have an opportunity to gain skills relevant to addressing major science and policy issues in the Arctic. The minor will train students to work with international organizations, national governments, and sub-national organizations and/or to pursue graduate study at the intersection between science and policy in the polar regions. Students enrolled in the minor will have priority over course registration that is related to the minor and will also be featured in the Canadian Studies Center's Quarterly newsletter. It's a great joy to have this new minor running and we are happy to announce students enrolled in the minor! 

2013-2014 Minors

Walter O'Toole, English Major, Arctic Studies Minor 

My major is English, and I’m excited to see how these two fields of study will intersect. I’m interested in the ways literature and language relate to Arctic identities and cultures. I’m particularly interested in the oral literature of the Inuit, both in its traditional forms and in its presence in contemporary Arctic literature. Additionally, the relationships between people and wildlife are fascinating to me, and I look forward to exploring these in the context of the Arctic and in my own writing.
