Students can take a variety of pathways through the Plan, depending on what else they are studying, where their interest lie and where they already have the prerequisites for higher level study. For example, a student who has already been introduced to major concepts in Indigenous Studies and has already taken courses in art and literature in other departments, would have the skills necessary to take a fourth- year English course in Indigenous Literatures.
Here are several examples of Plan pathways:
Pathway A: Social Sciences focused:
Year 1: DEVS 100/6.0
Year 2: DEVS 220/3.0 and DEVS 221/3.0
Year 3: RELS 227/3.0, HIST 256/3.0. POLS 320/3.0
Year 4: INTS 307/3.0, GPHY 351/3.0, DEVS 394/3.0
This pathway works well for a student doing a Major Plan in any of the social sciences, such as Political Studies, Geography, Sociology, Economics.
Pathway B: Language and Culture focused:
Year 1: LLCU 101 (Mohawk I)/3.0 and LLCU 102 (Mohawk II)/3.0

Year 3: DRAM 303/3.0, LLCU 101 (Inuktitut I)/3.0
Year 4: ENGL 480/3.0, ENGL 481/3.0
This pathway works well for a student doing a Major Plan in English.
Pathway C: Science and Social Science focused:
Year 1:HLTH 101/3.0, HIST 124/3.0

This pathway works well for a student doing a Major Plan in Life Sciences or Biology or a Specialization in Environmental Biology.
Pathway D: Indigenous Studies focused:
Year 1: HLTH 101/3.0, LLCU 101/3.0 ( Mohawk I or Inuktitut I)
