New students who are entering the Faculty of Arts starting in Fall 2021 will include at least three credit hours of Indigenous course content in their studies in order to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree.

The new requirement, passed by Senate on November 4, aims to provide students with an understanding of the place of Indigenous people in Manitoba’s and Canada’s history, and gives future graduates more tools to understand how that history is woven into many aspects of contemporary society.

Starting in fall 2021, the first set of eligible courses will be available from Native Studies, History, Political Studies, Sociology and Criminology and Women’s and Gender Studies, with more in development. The goal is to have as many departments in the Faculty of Arts add an eligible course to make it as easy as possible for students to fulfill the requirement as part of their degree and integrate this learning with their chosen area of studies.
