Indigenous Studies Majors

The department offers a major in Indigenous studies for the 40-course Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Arts and Science (BASc) degree programs. Alternatively, you can choose to do a general major in the humanities or social sciences and select INDG as one of your three streams. You can also opt for INDG as your BA major for the combined BA/Bed or BA/BMgt programs.

The department also participates in the delivery of Canadian Studies, focusing on developing a deeper appreciation of our Canadian identity and issues across a wide range of disciplines.
