Through a multidisciplinary program of study, the master’s program educates students to become innovative and capable scholars, leaders, and mentors who bring Indigenous perspectives to academic settings, government and other public service, and the private sector. ISP equips students with the knowledge and skills to conduct theoretical and applied research and to develop innovative solutions to issues facing Indigenous communities. Students can take advantage of courses offered across the university to create an individualized program of study. Our affiliate faculty members have appointments in the humanities, social sciences, arts, and professional schools across the university.
