A minor in Indigenous Studies is available to undergraduate students in all three faculties. This minor offers students flexibility in their choice of disciplinary areas of study while promoting a broad interdisciplinary understanding of Aboriginal / Indigenous topics.
The Indigenous Studies minor has an evolving curriculum, dependent on course offerings in departments and programs. Since the development of new courses and changes to existing courses is an ongoing process, students interested in Indigenous Studies should consider this list as a guide and consult with the contact person and the BA Advising Centre about their specific program.
