First Nations Studies is one of four programs housed in the Department of Human Behavior, Justice and Diversity. The other three programs are the Legal Studies, Psychology and Social Work Programs.
The First Nations Studies program seeks to promote an understanding and awareness of First Nations people. The program provides the opportunity for First Nations people and non-First Nations people alike to increase their knowledge of the origin of First Nations people in terms of history, culture and philosophy.
The differences between First Nations people and non-First Nations people will be examined through courses on culture and philosophy to gain a true understanding of the First Nations people. Stereotypes will be addressed through history courses with the goal of students gaining an appreciation of First Nations people and their contributions to the world. Other courses will provide an opportunity to gain knowledge and understanding of the role of the First Nations people in the cultural development of the world.
