About First Nations Studies at University of Northern British Columbia

Why take First Nations Studies at UNBC?
This is an innovative, inclusive, and transformative program that will broaden one's understanding of the world. We teach our students to think logically and creatively and communicate their ideas effectively, through oral and written means. We were the first university in British Columbia to offer a Bachelor's degree in First Nations Studies and the first department in Canada to offer a Master's degree in First Nations Studies.

First Nations Studies takes the points of view of First Nations people and communities as the starting point for description and analysis, and contextualizes issues from this perspective. Courses in First Nations Studies will re-orient students to question the underlying assumptions of everyday understanding and will develop clarity in thought and presentation critical to advanced study.

UNBC department of First Nations Studies upholds the values and practice of relationship, respect, responsibility and reciprocity. Our program prepared individuals to work effectively with individuals, organizations, industry, governments and communities.

Our graduates go on to work in a variety of fields including education, health, social services, law, natural resources, politics, etc.
