Diploma Programs


 

Aboriginal Environmental Stewardship Diploma
The Aboriginal Environmental Stewardship (AESD) Program is a partnership program between Aboriginal Focus Programs and the University of Manitoba's Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth and Resources and the Faculty of Arts: Department of Native Studies. The 60-credit hour diploma offers a post-secondary education program that provides the core principles of environmental science, stewardship and indigenous environmental justice. The program is designed to offer students an Indigenous community-focused perspective of environmental issues within Manitoba. The objective will be to integrate global and regional environmental issues related to the ecological, and cultural impacts as well as legal implications of resource use and exploration in the 21st century. The curriculum will focus on the incorporation of Indigenous Knowledge within a scientific framework. The AESD program is offered on-campus or as a community-based program through collaboration with external stakeholders.
