Providence University College to offer bachelor’s degree in partnership with NAIITS

July 3, 2013

Manitoba’s Providence University College signed an agreement with the North American Institute for Indigenous Theological Studies (NAIITS) to offer a bachelor’s degree in Community Development Studies to be designed and delivered by Indigenous peoples. The degree program will offer a large “learning by doing” component through in-community internships. PUC officials seek a mutually creative relationship where the insights, skills, and experience of First Nations scholars and communities will be embraced. NAIITS currently offers 3 other advanced degree programs in partnership with various PSE institutions: a Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies; a Master’s in Theological Studies, Indigenous; and a PhD in International Development. PUC News Release
