Aboriginal Teaching Education Program (ATEP)
The Aboriginal Teacher Education Program (ATEP) of Queen's University Faculty of Education offers several unique program tracks, which provide an opportunity for candidates to specialize in Aboriginal education. These program tracks are particularly suited to Aboriginal candidates.
Master of Education in Aboriginal and World Indigenous Educational Studies (M.Ed. AWIES)
AWIES is a part-time blended (on-line and on-campus) program in the Faculty of Education intended for students with experience in Aboriginal communities.
Aboriginal Access to Engineering
Aboriginal Access to Engineering provides culturally relevant student support services to undergraduate Aboriginal students enrolled in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. Working in partnership with the Four Directions Aboriginal Student centre, AAE strives to support the academic, physical, spiritual and emotional needs of students. Through AAE, students have access to tutoring and exam prep sessions, mentoring opportunities with practicing Aboriginal engineers, and liaison with industries particularly interested in the development of Aboriginal engineers through summer employment, internships and permanent positions.
Indigenous Policy and Governance Initiative
In partnership with FNTI (First Nations Technical Institute), Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, Queen’s School of Policy Studies now offers participants in the part-time Professional Master of Public Administration the opportunity to concentrate their elective courses in Indigenous Policy and Governance. This series of courses, unique in Canada, integrates traditional knowledge and philosophies in indigenous policy, governance, management and related areas with contemporary theoretical frameworks and best practices.
