North American Studies

The North American Studies program (NAMS) offers an interdisciplinary range of classes and study opportunities relating to North America: for the most part, specifically to the United States and Canada, either studied together or separately.

NAMS can be taken as a free-access Minor by any student registered for a degree with the University of Turku or with Åbo Akademi University, as a smaller package of at least 25 op (25 ECTS credits), or as a larger package including a further 35 op (total 60 op).

All classes and study units in the NAMS program are also open to any student registered with Turun yliopisto for a degree or as a visiting international or exchange student, and these courses can be included for credit in exchange students’ Learning Agreements. Please note, however, that exchange students are not admitted to the University of Turku only or primarily for the North American Studies program.
