What Can I Do With an Aboriginal Studies Degree?
Since it’s inception in 1994, the Aboriginal Studies Program has exposed students to diverse knowledge systems that reflect multiple ways of knowing. This interdisciplinary education, dedicated to the re-conceptualization of knowledge, has allowed our graduates to go on to pursue careers and further university study across a wide range of fields. Many Aboriginal Studies graduates have applied their education to careers in areas such as Social Work, Education and Community Development, Health, Media Arts and Journalism,Youth Outreach, Arts and Heritage, Public Policy Analysis, Advocacy Community-Government Relations. Aboriginal Studies students have also gone on to study at the graduate and professional level in programs such as Adult Education and Community Development, Anthropology, Archaeology, Community Health, Education, Environmental Studies, Forest Conservation, Global Affairs, Health Sciences, Geography, Law, Library Science, Literature, Linguistics, Medicine, Political Science and Social Work.
