Welcome to the site of the interdisciplinary Northern Studies graduate program at Carleton University. The program emphasizes northern environments and societies, and the policies that are developed to govern them.

The program includes experiential learning through a field course in the Canadian North.  Degree students participate in a placement at a northern agency in Ottawa or in the North.
