North America as a region is a focus of many international students, though U.S. students may also wish to better understand U.S. foreign policy. The United States field of study serves as the platform for those interested in the region, with the opportunity to build expertise through associated internships, special lectures, and the option to interact with hundreds of alumni working for the U.S. government. Canada receives attention through special lectures, and is an area of partnership as Fletcher continues to engage around Arctic issues.
