This is the Library's report on the new courses proposed as part of the International Studies program. The 200 level courses will be open to all students. The 300 level courses will only be open to students who have been admitted to an International Studies degree program. The courses will first be offered in 2005-3 and annually thereafter.

Monograph holdings are analyzed for each course. In each case, the SFU Library's book collection was assessed using Library of Congress subject headings for the topics covered by the course. Related subject headings and SFU holdings are listed below, together with comments about present levels of collecting.
