Program Information

School:Brandon University
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Field of Study:Aboriginal Studies
Description:The first program of its kind in North America, the Clinical Specialization stream provides students with the “hands-on” clinical skills and cultural competencies needed to work with Aboriginal peoples, families and communities. Committed to the principals of social justice, this steams honours the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of Aboriginal knowledge while students strengthen academic skills and develop counselling practice skills. Native Studies focuses on how colonialism – both historical and contemporary – impacts Indigenous nations, as well as on the many forms of resistance to it. Our courses draw primarily upon the work of indigenous scholars, and emphasize indigenous approaches to knowledge. Many span diverse geopolitical contexts.

Students in Native Studies can focus on courses in language and culture, in literature and the arts, and in history and philosophy. Or one may choose to study Indigenous perspectives on law, on treaties and treaty-making and on governance. Alternatively you might focus your studies on issues in Native health, education and spirituality, or learn more about the Metis nation, about Natives and the justice system, and Indigenous research methodologies.
