|Description:||The Indigenous Studies program provides a unique perspective that pertains to such disciplines as anthropology, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, religious studies, and sociology. The program is dedicated to the revival of Indigenous self-determination and the renewal of Indigenous thought and languages. It promotes the rights, values, and cultures of Indigenous peoples while developing Indigenous-appropriate approaches to community development and the analysis of national and global issues relating to Indigenous peoples.
The University of Sudbury’s Department of Indigenous Studies promotes an understanding of aboriginal peoples, their traditions, aspirations and participation in local, national and international communities. Key areas of study include: culture/spirituality, politics, social justice and language. The entire program is grounded in the study of “the spirit of things,” as opposed to empirical or entrepreneurial approaches. The program is inclusive of Indigenous and non-indigenous, as well as First Nations, Inuit and Métis perspectives in its pedagogical approach.
Career prospects include: Consulting, education, graduate studies in Canadian studies, education, environmental studies, history, humanities, law, language teaching, and politics.
