UArctic has developed seven 3 credit-unit courses focusing on northern issues, which are available to students at all UArctic member institutions. As a consortium member, the University of Saskatchewan has committed to recognizing and offering credit for these courses. These courses form the core of the interdisciplinary B.A. program in Northern Studies. The Northern Studies program offers students the opportunity to learn about the lands, peoples and issues of the circumpolar North with a special emphasis given to matters concerning indigenous people. Students pursuing a degree in Northern Studies are required to complete an advanced emphasis stream in either aboriginal public administration or environmental impact assessment and must also meet Program Type B requirements of the College of Arts & Science.
You can complete a three or four year Bachelor of Arts degree in Northern Studies at Cumberland College through taking classes from University of Saskatchewan, University of Regina and Athabasca University. Please ensure you see a College Advisor for academic advising to chose the correct courses to complete your degree.
