FLP Canada Economy Brochure
This short study abroad course offers Oregon State University students a practical interdisciplinary opportunity to study Canadian history, social political, economic and cultural values. We will be examining these issues in a broader North American and global context. The highlight of this intensive study abroad class will be living in Canada for six days and being able to observe, listen and talk to Canadians about their life. In the province of British Columbia, students will be exposed to an active daily program of study, which will include lectures from Canadian scholars, visits to government and non-government organizations, visits to art galleries, museums, and other sites of historical and cultural interest. By the end of this class, students will gain a comparative, critical perspective on the United States culture, politics, society and economy.
