Program Description

It is well-known that Indigenous people have an important connection with the natural world and are often considered stewards of the land. As such, the Bachelor of Science in Indigenous Environmental Science degree program will incorporate the strengths at the U of R and the FNUniv and the unique needs of Indigenous communities, taking into account holistic Indigenous perspectives and cultures.

The Bachelor of Science in Indigenous Environmental Science degree will provide students with tools to become experts in multi-faceted disciplines in the sciences, environmental assessment, environmental resource management, mining, land development, natural resource exploration, and health impact. To take advantage of these opportunities, students will take a variety of courses in sciences, focusing on environmental and ecological topics with an indigenous worldview. Students will also acquire important knowledge in environmental economics and community development.  There are five "Sections" of the degree: Basics and Breadth Courses, Environmental Courses, Indigenous Courses, Economics and Law Courses, and Approved Electives.

The four-year degree is offered in partnership between the University of Regina (U of R) Faculty of Science, and the First Nations University of Canada (FNUniv).
