Aboriginal Programs

Our University is dedicated to furthering the educational aspirations of Aboriginal students and offers a diverse range of high-quality, Aboriginal-focused programs.

In the spirit of its motto, "Miskwaadesi", meaning "turtle", the Department of Aboriginal Education recently created a proposed four-year Honours Bachelor of Education degree specializing in Aboriginal Education and aims to create new Graduate opportunities for Aboriginal applicants.
