Indigenous studies is a vibrant field of social, political, historical and cultural study in Canada and around the globe. Laurier's Indigenous Studies program is designed to teach you the perspectives and experiences of Indigenous people and will prepare you to engage with important socio-cultural issues facing Canada and the world. The Indigenous studies field is growing rapidly and we have designed a program that will prepare you to engage with important issues facing Canada and the world through course work in two programs and community service-learning opportunities. Our classrooms teach the perspectives and experiences of Indigenous people (who make up about 20% of the world’s population) to deepen your understanding of these issues. Your courses will cover topics in Indigenous rights, history, ecological knowledge, and teaching practices. Your education will be complemented by courses in Indigenous languages, literature and media.
