New BA in Indigenous Studies at Queen’s

July 17, 2013

The Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen’s University will begin offering a BA in Indigenous Studies this fall. The degree plan is part of a strategic initiative, along with the hiring of a Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Studies, to build a “flagship interdisciplinary field of study” at Queen’s. Students will have the option of completing the Indigenous Studies degree plan as a minor, or as a stand-alone 3-year BA degree. Queen’s has recently seen a 6% increase in self-identifying Aboriginal students applying for admission. Queen’s News
