|Degrees Offered||Expected Duration|
The Graduate program consists of core courses in the Native Studies Department and optional course offerings in other departments, and offers opportunities for specialization in First Nation, Inuit and Métis histories, cultures, social and theoretical issues.
The emphasis of the program is on research and therefore a thesis is a degree requirement in both the M.A. and Ph.D. programs.
Why Study at U of M?
The Native Studies program at the University of Manitoba is an international leader in the field that is committed to establishing outstanding scholarship relating to the historical and contemporary position of the Indigenous peoples of Canada. The Department strives to challenge existing institutional paradigms, as well as raise the bar of generally accepted research practices and teaching standards.
The Native Studies Graduate Colloquium is a weekly series that provides opportunities for graduate students to present their own research and to hear from some of the top academics and practitioners in the field of Native and Indigenous Studies from across Canada and around the world.
For students to be admitted directly into the Master's program, they are required to have the equivalent of an advanced/honours degree with a major in Native studies. Students with majors in other fields may apply if they have 30 credit hours in courses relating to Indigenous/Aboriginal/Native studies.
See the Department website for full admission requirements. All applicants must also meet the minimum admission requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
