O Canada: Gender, Human Rights, and Society
Join us for a new, affordable and exciting trip to Canada in Spring 2018.
Students will learn about Canadian concepts of rights and freedoms, including Indigenous people’s, women’s, LGBTQ, and refugee rights. We will also study contemporary approaches to reconciliation and justice in Canada, as well as policies on immigration, multiculturalism, health care and family.
Ottawa is the beautiful, green capital of Canada, while Montreal is renowned for being the old center of French Canada, with café culture and vibrant multicultural neighbourhoods. We are planning an exciting line-up of activities: sightseeing, public art, tours of Parliament, conversations with local experts, Indigenous walking tours, hands-on history and more! Take advantage of banded tuition! No extra tuition fees will be incurred for students studying full-time in Spring Semester at IU South Bend.
