Major program

In fall 2018, we launched a new major in Indigenous Studies to complement our existing minor.

The Major program strongly emphasizes experiential and land-based learning. Through core course offerings, students will be exposed to pedagogical, methodological, and theoretical approaches centered on Indigenous knowledges and perspectives.

To ensure that students receive a broad, interdisciplinary view of important issues in the historical, political, social, and cultural dimensions of the lived experiences of Indigenous people in Canada, the program requires students to take a minimum of 1.5 upper level units in each of the following Breadth Areas: Arts, Literatures and Languages; Histories, Politics, Laws and Lands; Education, Health and Healing; and Community and Land-Based Learning.
