The Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies is thrilled to welcome the Indigenous Studies program and our colleagues!

The Indigenous Studies program is committed to teaching Indigenous approaches, epistemologies, and knowledge. One of the major objectives of this undergraduate major is to advance Indigenous scholarship, research, and teaching within the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies and across the university. The Indigenous Studies program includes courses focusing on but not limited to kinship, ways of knowing, resistance, governance, genders, sexualities, and land as relation. With a degree in Indigenous Studies, students will be prepared to participate knowledgeably in urgent agendas of change: decolonization, climate action, Indigenous cultural and political resurgence, anti-racist education, grassroots capacity-building, law and policy reform, and revising public narratives of Canada and beyond.
