Developing leadership through an Indigenous worldview
Broaden your understanding of the cultural, historical, social and political experiences of Indigenous peoples in Canada. Gain knowledge and skills to pursue a career that involves leadership in Indigenous communities.
Indigenous leaders are role models for all people. Indigenous leadership is at the core of building a better world.
Indigenous Studies values your personal learning and growth, supporting physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual well-being as well as connections and contributions to community. Develop your skills for living and working in diverse cultural environments.
Whether you're firmly grounded in your cultural identity or you're just beginning to explore, this program is for you. The Indigenous Studies program meets you where you are and helps build your confidence and knowledge by supporting your learning and personal growth.
Learn to walk in two worlds while bringing your own Indigenous perspective to a multi-disciplinary education.
Sense of community
We recognize and honour the value of the community with the Indigenous Studies program by valuing relationships and community collaboration.
In this program, you will learn from local Elders and knowledge keepers while participating in land-based and experiential learning. We will provide support and guidance as you find, nourish and share your gifts throughout the duration of the program.
Are you of Indigenous ancestry?
At least 70% of the seats in the Indigenous Studies program are reserved for Indigenous students.
Camosun College views any student who is a descendant of the Indigenous peoples of North America to be an Indigenous student. This includes status and non-status Indians, Métis, Inuit and Native Americans who reside in Canada.
