St. Lawrence’s Canadian Studies Program
interested me from the moment I had the option to join it as part of my first-year program. Having a keen interest in U.S. history and literature,
Professors Forkey, Jockel, and Thacker’s course offerings gave me a great
insight to the dovetailed histories and literatures of North America.
As a student, I was able to learn the interwoven
histories of the U.S. and Canada firsthand, traveling to Ottawa, Montreal, and
Quebec, as well as making my way across Canada by train on a class fieldtrip to
experience the Canadian West with a group of my fellow students.
