Students have the option of selecting their modules of study after completing first year. The various modules allow students to develop both specialist and more general degree programs. A student may thus focus on Indigenous courses and obtain a degree in Indigenous Studies or combine Indigenous Studies with work in other disciplines.
Modules require specific courses or a combination of courses. Students may select one of the following modules:
Honours Specialization in Indigenous Studies
For admission into an Honors Specialization, you will need to complete all first-year requirements, including at least 3.0 principal courses as specified by the Department. These courses must be completed with a minimum average of 70% with no course grade below 60%. Indigenous Studies students must complete IS 1020E with a minimum grade of 60% prior to admission. To attain an Honors Specialization, 9 credits in specific combinations must be successfully completed.
