Program Goals, Delivery and Requirements
Our graduate programs in Indigenous Policy and Administration (IPA) prepare students to be innovators and leaders in First Nation, Métis and Inuit governments and organizations, as well as in other governments and organizations that work with them. They do so by strengthening the knowledge and skills for meeting the challenges of governance, policy development and its implementation, with a particular emphasis on both managing sustainable development, and introducing new methods of community economic and social development.
The requirements for your program are set out in the Graduate Calendar. The IPA diploma program takes different forms. Make sure you understand what you need to complete your program.
Carleton offers in-person and online support to help you with your program of study. The Carleton University Strategic Indigenous Initiatives Committee has an excellent website that provides resources and details of ongoing initiatives at Carleton, including Indigenous stories and news. The Kinàmàgawin report represents the culmination of years of work and collective engagement from members of Carleton’s community and beyond, and it sets out clear action items Carleton will be working on in the years ahead to ensure Carleton is a “more welcoming space for current and future Indigenous students and faculty members.”
Carleton offers support for your online learning experience through a dedicated website with resources and tips and tricks for getting the most from your online courses. Whatever your level of familiarity is with online learning platforms, we recommend looking at Carleton Online to ensure you are best positioned for your courses.
Carleton’s career services website is a wealth of information and opportunities for students looking for help with job searches or career advice. Career services offers one-on-one advising sessions, help with job searches, and career and networking events.
