The program welcomes students from around the world. They come out of undergraduate programs from diverse disciplinary backgrounds and diverse degrees, or with professional workplace experience in the public, private, or resource sectors.
Students may adopt a comparative approach to study islands or explore a topic or issue that is crucial to one island. Either way, the Island Studies program at the University of Prince Edward Island will prepare students with the practical research skills and knowledge they need to succeed in a world increasingly defined by interconnections and interactions among peoples and regions.
