Circumpolar Studies (Diploma - online only)
Challenge yourself to think beyond the “remote” and “cold” stereotypes of the Arctic and its communities. This one of-a kind, interdisciplinary program will teach you about Northern people and landscapes, geographical and historical contexts, and issues of security in a changing political and environmental climate. You’ll explore the rich diversity of the region, discuss everything from Indigenous issues to sustainable development and physical geography, and learn about how the North is fundamental to the global environment and economy. Developed by the University of the Arctic in partnership with Trent’s School of Environment, the Chanie Wenjack School for Indigenous Studies, and the School for the Study of Canada, this flexible learning opportunity will prepare you for a future focused on the Canadian North and beyond.
