Entry requirements

For the MA program, the Faculty of Native Studies' minimum admission requirements are an undergraduate degree with an admission GPA of at least 3.0 on the 4- point scale from the University of Alberta, or an equivalent qualification and standing from a recognized institution. The admission GPA will be calculated on the last *60 of graded coursework completed, or on the equivalent of the last two years of full-time graded coursework. This is, however, a competitive process - a 3.0 GPA is necessary but may not be sufficient.

The Faculty of Native Studies' minimum admission requirements for the dissertation-based PhD in Indigenous Studies program are a master's degree with an admission GPA of at least 3.3 on the 4- point scale from the University of Alberta, or an equivalent qualification and standing from a recognized institution. The admission GPA will be calculated on the last *60 of graded coursework completed, or on the equivalent of the last two years of full-time graded coursework.

Applicants to the MA program should have at least *12 of undergraduate courses in Native Studies or courses with significant Aboriginal content.

Where applicable, all applicants must meet the minimum English Language Requirement set by the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research.
