What will I learn?

From its multi-disciplinary foundation, Indigenous Studies is progressively acquiring an independent and unique basis for its teaching and research. The Department of Indigenous Studies seeks to provide an intellectual milieu where teaching and research are well grounded in the priorities and knowledge of Saskatchewan’s Aboriginal communities, all the while placing them within the larger fabric of the Canadian Aboriginal experience and the emergent global, social phenomenon of indigeneity.

Researchers and students in Indigenous Studies explore and seek to understand the fundamental nature of Aboriginal society. As a centre of academic inquiry based on sound pedagogical and research principles, the Department of Indigenous Studies strives to develop more expansive and innovative views on Indigenous Knowledge.

All students in this program will complete 12 credit units of course work (typically 4 classes) and a thesis. There is no project option in this program.
