Description: CBU has the highest percentage of Aboriginal student enrollment and graduate success rates of any post-secondary institution in Atlantic Canada. We are fortunate to enjoy a long history of strong partnerships with Mi’kmaq communities across the region, working together to expand the knowledge of our region’s Indigenous cultures by offering programs like Mi’kmaq Studies, that put the spotlight on their history and traditions.

Mi’kmaq Studies is offered as a Major and Concentration through CBU’s Unama’ki College, supported by the Department of Indigenous Studies. This program is designed to familiarize Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students with Mi’kmaq history, language, culture, traditions and socio-economic development of the Mi’kmaq First Nation.
