In 2010, The University of Western Ontario became the first university in Canada to offer a Master of Arts degree in American Studies. Within the program, students may specialize in one of two fields: American Cultural Studies or Canadian-American Relations. As an important component of their degree, the students are required to complete a Master's Research Project with the assistance of a faculty supervisor. Our MA program is interdisciplinary in nature, and as you will see, this has resulted in a rich diversity of MRP's written by our students. With their permission, we are proud to have the opportunity to make their work available on this site.
