Laurier offers academic programming with Aboriginal content – from a whole degree to numerous courses.
Enhance the breadth and depth of your knowledge by bringing the perspectives and experiences of Indigenous people into the classroom. You can combine a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Indigenous Studies with a complementary program such as Human Rights and Human Diversity, Criminology, Health Studies or Youth and Children’s Studies, or you can choose to add an Indigenous Studies Option to your degree.
The Master of Social Work (MSW) Aboriginal Field of Study is the first in Canada to combine a wholistic Indigenous worldview with contemporary social work practice, and includes the use of Indigenous Elders, a traditional circle process and Indigenous ceremonies. You’ll develop an understanding of and respect for the history, traditions and culture of the Indigenous peoples of Canada.
We also offer a number of courses in departments across the university that focus on Aboriginal content that you can make a part of your Laurier experience.
Some recent examples include:
Global Studies 355: Indigenous People in Global Context
Learn about the ongoing struggles of Indigenous peoples and the contemporary relevance of Indigeneity in a globalizing world. Discuss how Indigenous communities respond, resist, and adapt to the forces around them.
