Welcome to Canadian Studies

The Canadian Studies Program at the University of Missouri is a new, growing, and vibrant organization intended to promote awareness of Canada throughout the university, state, and region. A knowledge of Canada will provide students with a competitive advantage over their peers for careers in Canadian and international organizations. An understanding of Canadian culture, history and politics is particularly advantageous to Missourians, given Canada's status as our single largest international trading partner.
