Program Information

School: University of Alberta
Faculty: Faculty of Native Studies
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Aboriginal Studies
Description: Native Studies is an exciting area of study that seeks to understand the experiences and lives of Aboriginal people and communities past, present, and future – not on their own but in their relationships with those of settler society. The BA in Native Studies degree combines the insights of many traditional university disciplines, such as anthropology, history, law, and sociology, along with Aboriginal knowledge and perspectives. Graduates of this degree have one of highest employment rates of any faculty!

We are the only independent Faculty of Native Studies in Canada, with small class sizes and a diverse student population of both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students. We are student-centered, with a close-knit community of students, professors, and staff. We host regular Tea and Bannock potlucks, an annual tipi raising and take-down, and Games Night with the Dean. We are research-focused, with opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in research projects. Our courses incorporate traditional Indigenous knowledge and heritage as well as contemporary Indigenous experiences.
