Certificate in Aboriginal and Indigenous Studies

The certificate in Aboriginal and Indigenous studies is designed for those interested in learning about the history, cultures, languages, beliefs, and experiences of Aboriginal and Indigenous peoples. The objective of the program is to provide foundational knowledge for understanding historical and contemporary experiences of Aboriginal and Indigenous peoples – from the origins of first peoples and their complex histories over the proceeding millennia, to present movements and the growing desire for reconciliation between governments and Aboriginal and Indigenous societies.

The area of Aboriginal and Indigenous studies is an increasingly important field in Canada, and the world. This program will benefit a wide variety of learners, including current and prospective university students, and individuals interested in a career in the public, not-for-profit, and non-governmental sectors.
