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.
