MA Canadian Studies and Indigenous Studies

Choose Canada as both a subject and the context for your inquiry.

In the interdisciplinary Canadian Studies and Indigenous Studies program at Trent, you’ll be supported in your curiosity and your passion for intellectual debate and dialogue.

Structure your studies by choosing from one of two research options, a thesis or a major research paper. Explore important issues and debates in Canadian Studies and Indigenous Studies and consider areas of specialization such as: Canada in the global context; cultural heritage: women and gender, the arts; policy and community; or identities and difference in Canada.

At Trent, you’ll find a well-established program, a multi-disciplinary faculty that values your academic background and perspectives, and a closely-knit environment rich in inspiration.
