Main Library at TRU

The Aboriginal Studies Certificate provides students the opportunity to concentrate on aboriginal / indigenous studies as part of their degree. Students are encouraged to explore issues through a broad range of disciplinary course offerings. As indigenous issues cross disciplinary boundaries, so too does this certificate.

This is a 24-credit certificate students can obtain in the course of completing a degree. Graduates who meet the certificate credit requirements receive an Aboriginal Studies Certificate.
