DescriptionStudents in this program major in Human Dimensions of Environmental Management and focus on promoting stewardship of Aboriginal lands within the context of government policies and industrial development. Emphasis is placed on understanding how Aboriginal history, politics and cultural values influence natural resource management. As part of this program, you’ll have the opportunity to attend a three-week environmental field school. You can take this degree through either the Faculty of Native Studies or the Faculty of Agricultural, Life, and Environmental Sciences (ALES) and will remain enrolled in that faculty for the duration of the degree.

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.
