The Faculty of Native Studies is dedicated to supporting our students through their educational journey. While we are the smallest faculty at the U of A our support staff is here to assist and guide students as well as support our growing community. We offer certificates (embedded and standalone), undergraduate degree programs - 4 year, combined and after degree - and graduate degree programs.
