Indigenous Environmental Science / Studies

Indigenous Environmental Science/Studies at Trent University is an innovative and multidisciplinary program. It brings together principles of both Indigenous knowledge and Western science through courses offered in the Indigenous Studies Program and through the Trent School of the Environment as well as unique courses within the program. Instruction integrating these approaches will provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills, including both critical and integrative thinking abilities, to begin to address the complex environmental problems facing Indigenous communities, governments, business, industry, research, and society in general.
