Program overview

Native Studies is an exciting area of study that seeks to understand the experiences and lives of Indigenous people and communities past, present, and future – not on their own but in their relationships with those of settler society. Graduates of this degree have one of highest employment rates of any faculty! Why the Faculty of Native Studies? We are the only independent Faculty of Native Studies in Canada, with small class sizes and a diverse student population of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. We are student-centered, with a close-knit community of students, professors, and staff. We host regular Tea and Bannock potlucks, an annual tipi raising and take-down, and Games Night with the Dean. We are research-focused, with opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in research projects. Our courses incorporate traditional Indigenous knowledge and heritage as well as contemporary Indigenous experiences.
