Indigenous Studies is a vibrant field of social, political, historical and cultural study in Canada and around the globe. Combining a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Indigenous Studies with another BA program – such as Human Rights and Human Diversity, Criminology, Community Health or Youth and Children’s Studies – enhances the breadth and depth of your knowledge. Our classrooms teach the perspectives and experiences of Indigenous people (who make up about 20% of the world’s population) to deepen your understanding.
This field is growing rapidly and we have designed a program that will prepare you to engage with important issues facing Canada and the world through course work in two programs and community service learning opportunities.
Your courses will cover topics in Indigenous anthropology, teaching practices, ecological knowledge and history. Your education will be complemented by courses in Indigenous languages, literature and media.
The Indigenous Studies program fosters intercultural communication and awareness that provides the foundation for career success in a variety of fields.
