10 Regulations Governing the Degree of Master of Arctic and Subarctic Futures and the Graduate Diploma in Arctic and Subarctic Futures
The Master of Arctic and Subarctic Futures and the Graduate Diploma in Arctic and Subarctic Futures provide students with opportunities to pursue graduate learning in an interdisciplinary program that emphasizes place-based, on the land experience, Indigenous pedagogies and research methods, and that focuses on the needs and priorities of the North. The programs aim to make a strong contribution to understanding and addressing the most pressing needs and priorities of the North, and to training a network of students and learners who will contribute to Northern social, cultural, and economic growth, development, and prosperity.
Students in the research streams must conduct research that meets the needs and priorities in Labrador and throughout the North, and works in partnership with Northern and Indigenous governments, organizations, communities, and leaders.
The programs are designed to be modular and flexible, and are administered and coordinated by the decanal executive assistant, with responsibilities for academic program coordination, acting as a program liaison with the School of Graduate Studies in St. John’s, and under the supervision of the Dean of the School of Arctic and Subarctic Studies. Additional administrative support will be provided by the Senior Administrative Officer, and the Administrative Support Specialists at the Labrador Campus. The Dean of the School of Arctic and Subarctic Studies will oversee the overall administration and functioning of the programming.
