Queen's University offers Indigenous-focused Programs:
Aboriginal Access to Engineering takes a multi-faceted approach to increasing the participation of the Aboriginal community in science, technology, engineering and math. The initiative provides on-campus student supports to undergraduate and graduate students in engineering, as well as an extensive outreach program, created specifically for Indigenous youth with culture at its' foundation.
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.
AWIES is a part-time blended (on-line and on-campus) program intended for students with experience in Aboriginal communities.
In partnership with FNTI (First Nations Technical Institute), 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, integrate traditional knowledge and philosophies in indigenous policy, governance, management and related areas with contemporary theoretical frameworks and best practice.
Pursue a Bachelor of Arts general degree plan in Indigenous Studies through the Faculty of Arts and Science. The plan in Indigenous Studies will be interdisciplinary, and can be completed either as a minor in combination with any major offered in the Faculty of Arts and Science or as a stand-alone general area of study in a three-year degree.
This NSERC CREATE Program provides training in sustainable building, energy projects, advanced sensing, cultural sensitivity, law, ethics and business skills through a unique combination of academic training, industry internships, seminars, workshops, and cutting-edge research. SERA is targeted at engineering graduate students and undergraduate Aboriginal students at any of the four participating institutions (Queen’s University, University of Manitoba, University of Ottawa and the Royal Military College of Canada) with an interest in renewable energy or sustainable building technologies.
