Indigenous Governance

Indigenous governance programming is more important now than ever. Our program's course content is informed by a deep respect for Indigenous knowledge and traditions. You’ll study the current political realities of Indigenous communities. You'll gain a deeper understanding of the profound effect that mutually-productive working relationships can have.

Our Indigenous governance program is recognized worldwide for its accountability and relevance to Indigenous communities. We welcome students from both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.

You can combine our Indigenous Nationhood certificate with our Master’s program for an even more well-rounded education.
