Arctic Studies Minor

A interdisciplinary minor in Arctic Studies at the University of Washington is a joint offering by the Canadian Studies Center, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, College of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Oceanography, College of the Environment, in collaboration with University of the Arctic. The purpose of the Arctic Studies 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.
