The Indigenous Studies (INDG) program offers a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Arts Honours, which provide the Social Science core for most degree and certificate programs offered by the First Nations University of Canada. The program fosters research and the intellectual study of Indigenous peoples and their cultures, histories, and contemporary circumstances – with an emphasis on Saskatchewan first, followed by Canada, North America, the western hemisphere and the world. Efforts complement the traditional teachings of Elders and knowledge carriers. A Minor in Indigenous Studies is also available.

With courses that can be taken face-to-face or by videoconferencing at any of the three campuses, and/or online, Indigenous Studies will prepare students to compete for all career options open to other university Arts graduates. Students can apply for second degree programs in faculties such as Law, Administration, Education, Fine Arts, Science and Social Work, or pursue honours and graduate studies in the Social Sciences or Humanities.
