Arctic Studies Minor

Students in the Arctic Studies minor will gain the skills to address 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 to pursue graduate study at the intersection of science and policy in the polar regions. This interdisciplinary minor is a collaboration between the Canadian Studies Center, housed at the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Oceanography in the College of the Environment.
