Native American Studies (NAS) explores art, law, philosophy, health, politics, history, gender studies, ecology, business, customs and language—all from a unique Native perspective—making this one of the most sought-after programs of its kind in Canada.
In this program, you’ll have the opportunity to investigate First Nations’, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) history, heritage and culture, as well as the contemporary issues that face FNMI communities.
As a student of NAS, you’ll have access to Native American and First Nations’ instructors, who are often nationally or internationally renowned, seasoned professionals with real-world experience.
NAS students have an active presence on campus through the NASA, which sponsors an annual Native Awareness Week and various other community events.
This annual, week-long event consists of a series of free lectures, workshops and the celebration of Native culture. The week concludes with a spectacular Pow-Wow, involving Native singers and dancers from across North America. Native Awareness Week usually takes place in the spring semester.
