First Year at a Glance

As a first year student you will be required to take Indigenous Learning 1100 and 1310 – Introduction to Indigenous Learning and Methods/Approaches Applied to Indigenous Learning, respectively. These courses take a broad view of the Native experience before and after the arrival of Europeans, including the importance of oral tradition, art and material culture. 

The balance of your courses will be from the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities. At the beginning of second year you can tailor your courses to receive a specialization in Governance, Community Development or Health and Well-Being.

You also have the opportunity to combine your Indigenous Learning major with a major in Philosophy, Women's Studies or Concurrent Education (Intermediate/Senior).
