Combined Honours in Indigenous Studies
Launching in Fall 2017, Carleton’s Combined Honours in Indigenous Studies will expose students to core courses in pre and post-contact Indigenous Studies, Indigenous resistance, Indigenous representations, and urban Indigenous issues. Students enrolled in the program will complete either a land-based or community-based fourth-year project.
The program will have four main thematic areas or suites of courses centered on Indigenous Peoplehood Studies, Indigenous ways of knowing and epistemologies, the history of Indigenous-Settler relations and colonization, and lastly, Indigenous recovery, vitalization, and reclamation and decolonization. This latter suite will include courses on Indigenous governance and contemporary issues. The four themes will come together at the fourth year in a Capstone course titled “Indigeneity and the City” which will have a specific focus on urban Indigeneity and the Ottawa area.
