Memorial University is home to a wealth of information and expertise on all things relating to the unique place that is Newfoundland and Labrador. Through the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, students can tap into this knowledge to pursue a multi-disciplinary minor in Newfoundland Studies.

An alternative to a minor offered by a single department, the program allows students to study Newfoundland and Labrador society and culture through a variety of approaches. It draws on courses from several departments, including history, geography, political science, English literature, linguistics, anthropology, sociology and folklore.

The University Calendar offers more detailed information on requirements and course content.

Students will find that their studies are greatly enhanced at Memorial by our unparalleled collection of library and archival materials, including those in the Centre for Newfoundland Studies at the QE II Library, which recently celebrated its 40th anniversary. As well, Memorial publishes an acclaimed scholarly journal Newfoundland and Labrador Studies.
