The School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies tackles problems that do not fit easily into disciplinary boundaries, which allows our students to develop creative and innovative research methods and ways of thinking. Our faculty engage in research and teaching across a number of thematic areas including Indigenous Studies; Critical Settler Studies; Heritage Conservation; Culture, Memory, and Place; Nation-building, Nationalisms, and Nation-branding; Social Justice: Voice, Power, and Policy; Gender and Sexualities; and Identity, Representation, and Performance.

In the emerging global economy, the development of Canada-centred knowledge has become even more relevant and in demand. Our graduates have gone on to have successful careers in both private and public sectors. Read some of our alumni testimonials here. In this program, you will learn how to identify, explain and utilize key concepts, methods and theories in critical Indigenous, Canadian, and heritage studies, and apply them creatively and carefully to new contexts and inquiries. Many faculty members in the School are cross-appointed with other disciplines at Carleton (including Architecture, Art History, English, French, Geography, and History) which gives our students the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary ways of thinking and doing research. Read about some of the research our graduates have completed here. Students also have the option of completing a practicum to develop their skills and have a relevant workplace experience. As a graduate student you can participate in the Indigenous and Canadian Studies Grad Community, an engaged and inclusive student organization which represents graduate students to the School and at the Carleton Graduate Students’ Association. Our graduate students also organize the Heritage Conservation Symposium and SICS Speaker Series. There are many exciting ways to get involved in the School!
