Students have the option of selecting their modules of study after completing first year. The various modules allow students to develop both specialist and more general degree programs. A student may thus focus on First Nations courses and obtain a degree in First Nations Studies or combine First Nations Studies with work in other disciplines.
Modules require specific courses or a combination of courses. Students may select one of the following modules:
For admission into an Honors Specialization, one needs to complete first-year requirements, including at least 3.0 principal courses as specified by the Department. These courses must be completed with a minimum average of 70% and each course grade must be at least 60%. First Nations Studies students must complete First Nations Studies 1020E with a minimum grade of 60% prior to admission. To attain an Honors Specialization standing, 9 credits in specific combinations have to be successfully completed.
