Indigenous Studies

At NIC you will find we offer more than 80 programs and hundreds of courses. Our commitment to Indigenization has led to revamping of our curriculum to incorporate Indigenous history, ways of knowing and being, literature, culture and language. NIC works closely with Regional Aboriginal Advisory Committees and the Indigenous Education Council to develop programs and courses informed by Indigenous ways of knowing and being and Indigenous language courses such as Kwak’wala and Nuu-chah-nulth.

NIC is honoured to welcome Indigenous learners from many Nations and cultures and recognizes the wealth of traditional knowledge students bring to the college community. We strive to create a welcoming environment that nurtures your success.
