The Department of Indigenous Studies

What is Indigenous Studies?

Indigenous Studies explores art, law, philosophy, health, politics, history, gender studies, ecology, business, customs and language—all from a unique Aboriginal perspective—making this one of the most sought-after programs of its kind in Canada.

In this program, you’ll have the opportunity to investigate First Nations’, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) history, heritage and culture, as well as the contemporary issues that face FNMI communities.

As a student of Indigenous Studies, you’ll have access to instructors, who are often nationally or internationally renowned, seasoned professionals with real-world experience.

Indigenous Students' Union (ISU)

Indigenous Studies students have an active presence on campus through the ISU, which sponsors an annual Native Awareness Week and various other community events.
