The interdisciplinary Northern Studies graduate program at Carleton emphasizes northern environments and societies, and the policies that are developed to govern them. Students can complete this program as a Master of Arts, Master of Science or as a Graduate Diploma. All of the programs are designed to give interdisciplinary training and experience in Northern Studies and all students are required to begin their studies with a field course of about one week in length. This is a residential field course that will take place too far from Ottawa for daily commuting. The introductory field course is a prerequisite for the core courses that are integral to the degrees and diplomas. Students in the degree program are required to take a work placement in Ottawa or the North, a second field course in northern Canada, and a comprehensive examination.
